A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous kinds of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your particular 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 type of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last many years with proper home care; however, they might need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- 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 typically requires 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a extremely precise 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 multiple weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space created 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 specific science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is very important 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 shift inward, creating an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease ends up being a major problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
