A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method 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 typically 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 connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last years with proper home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill area 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 eliminating a portion 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 fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks till your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfy 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 brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space developed 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 may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends upon 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 start to shift inward, developing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually result in problems with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
