A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will talk about the best options for your specific 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 synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with appropriate 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 involve?
- 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 typically needs two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct 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 resemble 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 may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, creating an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just 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.
