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 very best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made of 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 synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- 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 normally requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a portion of enamel to enable 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 short-term bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks till your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will aid in the life of your 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 appear like 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 specific science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately result in issues 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 severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
