A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is an exceptional method to replace missing teeth.
There are numerous types of bridges. We will go over the very best options for your particular case. The "traditional bridge" is the most popular type and is typically made from porcelain fused to metal. These fixed bridges are most popular since they resemble your natural teeth. This kind of bridge consists of 2 crowns that go over 2 anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the synthetic teeth (pontics), filling the space created by multiple missing teeth.
Dental bridges are extremely resilient and will last many 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:
Exactly what does getting a Fixed Bridge involve?
- Restore chewing and speaking capability.
- 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 usually requires two 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 precise 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 worn for numerous weeks up until your next visit.
At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to accomplish a proper fit and comfy bite.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Correct 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 space produced 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 precise 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 a number of reasons. If not treated the teeth surrounding the gap begin to move inward, developing a whole chain reaction of bad things. Teeth use their neighbors for assistance, and, with one missing, they start to "fall." As this worsens the bite changes in response to the pressure. This can ultimately lead to 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 issue, with the difficulty of treatment enhancing as the neglect continues.
