Types of Dental Bridges
Traditional dental bridges use a dental crown to entirely cover or cap the missing tooth. There are various types of dental bridges such as traditional bridges, cantilever bridges or Maryland bridges. Traditional and Maryland bridges are the common types of bridges that are made from porcelain fused with metal. Dental bridges give you aesthetic appearance, eases a lot of pressure from biting and chewing, and strengthen the adjacent teeth. They help retain your jaw bone and facial shape and keep your surrounding teeth healthy and strong.
Dental Bridge Procedure
A dental bridge has one or more false teeth or pontics that are fixed to the abutment teeth or crowns and fill the gap created by the missing teeth. You might need two visits to your dentist to fix the dental bridges. During your first dental clinic visit, your dentist will check the oral cavity and will prepare the abutment teeth for the placement of the bridges. This involves chipping of the enamel to make room for the crown, and an impression is made of the prepared tooth. The crowns are made in the dental lab.
Temporary bridges are made until the permanent bridge is fitted. During the second visit, the dentist will remove the temporary bridge and fix and adjust the permanent bridge. Typically adjustments are made in follow-up visits so that the patient can determine the fit and then the bridge is permanently cemented in place. A fixed porcelain dental bridge can last 10 years or longer. It is important to take care of dental bridges with regular flossing and brushing of teeth and dental checkup.
