A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an excellent method to replace missing teeth.
There are multiple types of bridges. We will discuss the best options for your certain case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular because 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 space created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last multiple years with appropriate home care; however, they may have to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.
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 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 out to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be produced. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and used for a number of weeks until your next appointment.
At the 2nd visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully inspected, adjusted, and cemented to attain a proper fit and comfortable bite.
You will receive care directions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing and routine dental visits will aid in the life of your brand-new permanent bridge.
Why Consider Dental Bridges?
This is an option for filling the area produced by a missing tooth. It is formed to appear 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 on requirements for strength, wear, and/or esthetics.
It is necessary that a missing tooth be replaced as quickly as possible for numerous reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the space begin to move inward, creating an entire domino effect of bad things. Teeth use 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 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 ends up being a major problem, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
