A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap created 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 regular wear.
Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- 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 portion 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 made. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks till your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper 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 resemble 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 exact science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to shift inward, developing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to 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 becomes a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
