A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will go over the best options for your certain 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 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 one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last years with appropriate home care; however, they might have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
Reasons For Considering Getting 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 normally needs 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a part of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks up until your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space 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 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 on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is important 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 move inward, creating an entire domino effect 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 lead to issues with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth weaken and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
