A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will talk about 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 kind of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last multiple years with appropriate home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 requires 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 highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks till your next appointment.
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 instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct 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 created 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 specific science. The materials used might 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 important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, developing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
