A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will go over the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because 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 gap developed by multiple 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.
Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- 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 two 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 highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for a number of weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a correct fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular 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 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 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 choice of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, producing an entire 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 reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
