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 particular 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 kind of bridge includes 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with appropriate home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to regular wear.
A Few Reasons For Getting A Fixed Bridge:
What does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- 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 typically needs 2 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 extremely precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental lab where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for numerous weeks until your next appointment.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly checked, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will help in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Should You 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 assistance, 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 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 very important that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to shift inward, creating an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this intensifies the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to 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 problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
