A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will talk about the very best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because 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 synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last years with correct home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill area 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 generally needs two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a extremely accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a correct fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear 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 specific 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 important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, producing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize 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 whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade and it is just a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a major issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
