A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple kinds of bridges. We will discuss the very best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is generally made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely durable and will last multiple years with correct home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
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 normally needs 2 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 out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a correct fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why You Should Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the space produced 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 precise 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 necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to move inward, producing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin 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 weaken and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a serious problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
