A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made from 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 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly 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 Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill area of missing teeth.
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
- Upgrade from a detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge generally requires 2 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 out to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to attain a appropriate fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space produced 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 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 essential 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, producing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually lead to issues with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
