A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent 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 typically made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- 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 generally requires 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 to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks till your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully examined, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space 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 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 exact 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 necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to move inward, producing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in problems with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth degrade 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 increasing as the neglect continues.
