A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of 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 durable and will last years with proper home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
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 generally 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 highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks till your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space 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 choice of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately result in issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a major issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
