A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will talk about the very 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 because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes two crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last many years with proper home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering 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 generally requires 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks till your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space developed by a missing tooth. It is formed to resemble 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 exact 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 essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, producing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to problems with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
