A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types 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 from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last many years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- 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 normally needs 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks up until your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a appropriate fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and routine 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 area produced 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 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 precise science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is very important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to move inward, producing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually result in problems 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 severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
