DENTAL BRIDGE

DENTAL BRIDGE

Dental bridge is affixed to an adjacent natural tooth or a connecting post on an dental bridge to fill the gap left by a lost tooth.

Regarding looks and chewing function, porcelain dental bridges are a complete solution for missing teeth, replacing them almost entirely. Dental bridge replaces a missing tooth in the center by placing a false tooth between two crowns at either end of the space. The bridge span of the dental prosthetics bridge is made up of these two crowns affixed to the abutment teeth.

Restoring a porcelain dental bridge is a good option for almost anyone who has lost one to three teeth in succession. At least two middle teeth are required to construct a porcelain bridge, and since they will serve as the structure’s support, they must be in good condition. Following an evaluation of the required bearing capacity for the abutment teeth, the dentist will determine the length of the bridge and the number of abutment teeth.

2. Different kinds of bridges

2.1. Traditional bridge

The most utilized and typical form is the traditional dental bridge. An additional prosthetic crown, also known as a shoulder denture, is placed in the center of the bridge, with one height on each of the two abutments at the two ends of the gap created by the missing tooth.

The false one will replace the missing tooth, supporting the dental bridge. This type of bridge has high stability, which is a significant benefit. The teeth next to the missing teeth will, however, need to be ground down to execute this type of bridge.

A branch of the conventional bridge employs just one tooth as a truss. In such an overpass, the anterior groups of teeth are the only places where bridges are typically used, along with other kinds of bridges. Due to their weakness, bridges are not used for back teeth when only one tooth acts as an abutment. You’ll save time and money by carrying this out. The overpass may not be indicated in some circumstances, however.

2.2. The Maryland glued-wing bridge

It will resemble the conventional bridge in some ways, but a metal frame will be used rather than a tooth mask to cover the two neighboring teeth.

Two adjacent teeth don’t need to be prepared when a metal frame is used because it will be attached to their backs. Compared to a traditional bridge, the Maryland glued-wing bridge will help conserve resources and reduce expenses. Metal materials can occasionally stain teeth, and the stickiness of the bridge will depend on how sticky the bonding material is.

2.3. Dental bridges on implants

Supporting a bridge with implants similar to a conventional bridge, the one supported by the implant will have a bearing post mounted. As a result, the bridge on the implant is not dependent upon the presence of nearby teeth and can be used in situations where there has been a lengthy period of tooth loss or numerous tooth losses.

Strength, longevity, and maintenance of proper chewing function are all features of dental bridges on implants. However, this kind of bridge necessitates an invasive operation and a recovery period.

Customers with tooth loss have various options, including the bridge types listed above. Traditional bridges and Maryland veneers can be used when there are teeth in addition to missing ones.

Dental bridges on implants can be used when many teeth have been removed. Bridges are used when only teeth are on one side of the gap where a tooth once was. Each type of bridge has its own set of cos; only your dentist can counsel you on which is best for your particular circumstance. You should select the bridge style that makes you smile the most.

3. Aftercare

After a bridge is built, how do you take care of it? Use a soft toothbrush to gently brush your teeth after meals before bed, paying particular attention to the area around the bridge that touches the abutment. Bacteria here have been linked to periodontal disease and tooth decay. To clean this region, a mechanical brush can be used.

At least once or twice daily, clean the area above and below the bridge, paying particular attention to the lower area. Plaque can be taken out with a unique floss threader tool.

A water bath (which uses water jets to clean teeth) is combined with an antibacterial solution to keep the bridge region clean.

Before sleep, rinse with a fluoride mouthwash for at least one minute. Avoid swallowing the mouthwash and wait 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything.

While preventing oral diseases brought on by plaque and bacteria, proper bridge maintenance will guarantee the bridge’s longevity for many years.
