A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will talk about the very best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last many years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal 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 usually needs two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating 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 lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for a number of weeks till your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper 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 new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area 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 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 specific science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, creating an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
