A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will talk about the very 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 since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable 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 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 normally 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 precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks till your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a appropriate fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space developed 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 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 choice 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 move inward, developing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually result in issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
