A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last years with proper home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Considering Getting A Fixed Bridge:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- 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 typically requires 2 or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating 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 fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for multiple weeks until your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to achieve 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 aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why Should You Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area developed by a missing tooth. It is formed to look 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 specific science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, producing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately result in issues 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 becomes a serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
