A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last multiple years with proper home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill area of missing teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Upgrade from a detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge typically needs 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a portion of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks up until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a appropriate fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for support, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an precise science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, developing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually result in issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
