A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will go over the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular due to the fact that they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last years with correct home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
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 generally requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for 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 short-term bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks up until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why You Should 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 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 upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is very important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous 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 start to "fall." As this intensifies 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 ends up being a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
