A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of types of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is normally 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 gap developed by multiple 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.
A Few 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 detachable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.
- Restore your smile.
Getting a bridge typically needs two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by eliminating a portion 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 short-term bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a appropriate fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate 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 area created 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 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 exact science. The materials used may 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 essential that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, developing an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually 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 severe issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
