A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will discuss the 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 since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind 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 gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly resilient and will last years with proper home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Considering A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge include?
- Restore chewing and speaking ability.
- Maintain facial shape.
- Fill space 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 generally needs two 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 highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks till your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper 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 area developed 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 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 multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to shift inward, developing an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they begin to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually lead to 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 major problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
