A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made from 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 artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last many years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 typically needs 2 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 to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area 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 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 precise 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 necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, creating an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
