Fixed Dental Bridges Dentist Farmingdale

When you have a missing tooth and are looking for a permanent way to replace it, fixed dental bridges can provide you with a good solution. This type of bridge requires no extra care and you never have to worry about losing it. It will also help you to retain the shape of your jawbone and smile.

About Bridges

Bridges replace teeth that are either already missing or ones that you will have extracted. The teeth portion of the bridge is generally made of ceramic and they are usually made to be removable or permanent.

The Anchors

There are two different ways to anchor fixed dental bridges. The traditional way is to prepare the teeth on both sides of the gap for a crown. Three crowns are made and then cemented together, with the false tooth in the middle. The crowns are then cemented in place. The crowns can be made from a variety of materials, including gold, alloys, porcelain, and more.

Another method involves the placing of dental implants. Implants can be used where there are several teeth missing, and two implants may be all that is necessary to hold a bridge with several teeth on it.

Although they cost more, implants have the advantage of being able to prevent bone loss under the missing tooth. It can also help keep your teeth from drifting which will also help to retain their alignment and the beauty of your smile.

When implants are used, there is a rather lengthy healing time involved. Some dentists will place permanent dentures on the implants on the same day, but others will use temporary ones until healing has been completed, which could take up to six months.

The Process

When teeth are used to serve as the posts for your new crown, the teeth are first prepared for crowns. This means the teeth on either side of the gap are filed down so that a crown can be placed on them. Once this is complete, the dentist will take a mold of your teeth, which will be sent to the lab. You will be given temporary crowns to protect them until you get the new ones.

When the new bridge comes in, the temporary crowns will be removed and the new crown put into position to be sure it fits. Once it is correct, the dentist will cement it in place.

Advantages of Fixed Bridges

A fixed bridge will give you several advantages over a removable bridge. In addition to helping you to retain the alignment of your teeth, it will not slip or slide like dentures enabling you to eat or talk with confidence, and it is strong enough to let you eat normally. It also requires no extra cleaning process – you simply brush and floss as before.

The dentist will help you decide which type of replacement teeth may be best for you. The dentists at Global Family Dental can provide you with fixed dental bridges and any other dental work you need, including implants. They are also able to take care of all the dental needs of your family.
