A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last years with correct home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill space of missing teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge normally requires 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to attain a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to look like the missing tooth, and it takes its place in the mouth. The sides of a bridge uses the two surrounding teeth for assistance, hence the name. A bridge replaces the missing tooth, both functionally and cosmetically. Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is very important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a major problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
