A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made of 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 attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last multiple years with proper home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
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 detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge typically requires 2 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 highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a correct fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will aid in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area 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 exact science. The materials used might 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 essential that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start 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 reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems 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 becomes a severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
