A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular due to the fact that 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 synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last years with proper home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly 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 detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge normally needs 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 precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your brand-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 appear like 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 precise science. The materials used might 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 essential that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to shift inward, creating a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken 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 increasing as the neglect continues.
