Dental Bridges: Restoring Smiles With Precision

At Goldfields Family Dental, we take pride in restoring smiles. Dental bridges are a dental service that we offer at Goldfields Family Dental designed to replace missing teeth and restore functions and aesthetics to the teeth. Below is everything to know about dental bridges.

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth or dental implants. Depending on the type, there are various types of dental bridges, including Traditional bridge in which a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, called a pontic, and a cantilever bridge are both used when the adjacent teeth are only on one side and a Maryland bonded bridge, made up of porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.

What Does a Dentist Bridge Mean?

With anything from a single tooth bridge to a more complex arrangement, the principles of bridge work for teeth are the same. It makes a bridge between two stable teeth so that a new prosthetic tooth can be placed there, filling the gap and securely anchored on both sides. Bridge work teeth are sometimes called pontics, which comes from the Latin word pontus, meaning bridge. You’ve heard the old French song, Sur le Pont d’Avignon – same origin. On the Avignon bridge, secure and solid at both ends but with a new section in the middle.

What is the Procedure for Having a Dentist Bridge your Gap?

All our dental bridges and crowns (which are another way of tackling a similar problem) are made in a specialist dental lab. We have a good look in your mouth to assess exactly what is needed, then pass the information to them and they will make your bridge to order, using the latest materials for excellent strength and realistic appearance. They give the finished article to us; we install it securely and you’re back in business as if nothing ever happened. Forget the old notions of removable false teeth on a plate: they do still exist, but there is so much more that can be done these days when it comes to cosmetic dental treatments. Bridges are permanent, so you’re not going to be removing them at night and putting them in a glass in the bathroom. Yours will be in your mouth for the duration, fulfilling the function of the original one that somehow bit the dust. You will be biting and chewing effectively, and maybe smiling more than ever, just because you know you look good when you do it.

Restores Functionality and Appearance

A dental bridge is essential as it helps prevent more teeth from moving. It also improves your ability to chew and speak. This point should be humanized to.

Boosts confidence

People with missing teeth may not be confident when sharing or even smiling when taking pictures. Dental bridges create an artificial smile or teeth with the same structure, hence preventing embarrassment.

Prevents Further Problems

Once a tooth is removed, there comes teeth alignment problems; dental bridges help maintain a proper bite. They also help maintain oral health since the remaining teeth do not have spaces to move, hence reducing the risk of getting oral infections.

Preparation of Teeth

The adjacent teeth are prepared by recontouring them to provide a base for the bridge.

Impression Taking

Impressions of the teeth are taken, which will serve as a model from which the bridge, the pontic, and the crowns are to be made by the dental lab.

Once your permanent bridge is made, it’s fitted, adjusted, and cemented in place to achieve a proper fit.
