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 normally made of 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 two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space developed by one or more 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 normal wear.
A Few Reasons For Considering 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 removing a part of enamel to enable a crown. Next, a highly precise impression (mold) is made which will be sent out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be made. In addition, a short-term bridge will be made and worn for a number of 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 guidelines at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper 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 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 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 specific science. The materials used might 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 important that a missing tooth be replaced as soon as possible for multiple reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space start to shift inward, creating an entire chain reaction of bad things. Teeth utilize their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in reaction to the pressure. This can ultimately result in issues with the entire 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 serious issue, with the difficulty of treatment increasing as the neglect continues.
