A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last many years with proper home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For 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 generally needs 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 extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for multiple weeks till your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area created 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 exact science. The materials used might 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 important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to move inward, developing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use 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 lead to 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 becomes a major problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
