When a tooth is lost, a dental bridge, which is a permanent non-removable prosthetic, is a great option. Fixed bridges are classified into various categories. The finest alternatives for your unique case will be discussed by you and your dentist.
The most common variety, known as the “classic bridge,” is often constructed of porcelain bonded to metal. Since they mimic your real teeth, porcelain fixed bridges are the most popular type. The gap left by one or more missing teeth is filled by this type of bridge for teeth, which consists of two crowns that cover two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are connected to pontics (artificial teeth).
Although dental bridges are quite strong and can endure for many years, they may eventually need to be replaced or re-cemented owing to wear and tear from daily use.
Having a bridge normally takes two or more appointments. The two anchoring teeth are prepped by having some enamel removed while the teeth are numbed in order to make room for a crown. After that, a precise impression (mold) is created and transported to a dental lab where the bridge will be created. A temporary bridge will also be created and worn for a few weeks until your subsequent visit.
Your permanent dental bridges will be meticulously examined, modified, and cemented to get the ideal fit during the second appointment. On rare occasions, your dentist may temporarily set the bridge in place to give your teeth and surrounding tissue some time to adjust. At a later date, the new bridge will be securely attached.
At the end of your treatment, you’ll get care instructions. Your new permanent bridge will last longer if you brush, floss, and get regular dental checkups.
