A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will go over the very best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes two 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 years with appropriate home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering 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 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 eliminating a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your 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 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 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 necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap start to move inward, developing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in issues with the whole 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 serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
