A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional way to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will go over the best options for your specific case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap developed by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last years with correct home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
A Couple Reasons For Considering 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 generally 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 accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for numerous weeks till your next visit.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be thoroughly examined, adjusted, and cemented to attain a appropriate fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Appropriate brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your brand-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 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 precise science. The materials used might be gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all ceramic material. The choice of material depends upon requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, developing a whole domino effect of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this gets worse the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can eventually result in problems with the whole jaw, e.g. TMJ. The surrounding teeth deteriorate and it is simply a matter of time before they, too, are lost. Gum disease becomes a severe problem, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
