A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are a number of kinds of bridges. We will talk about 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 since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge includes two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last multiple years with proper home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
Reasons For Considering 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 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 highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental lab where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for a number of weeks till your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a appropriate fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will help in the life of your new permanent bridge.
Why 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 precise science. The materials used may be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The option of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is essential 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 a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can eventually result in problems with the whole 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 serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
