FIXED TOOTH REPLACEMENT


The loss of teeth is associated with diminished self-confidence and of course chewing difficulties. So, it is necessary to replace the missing teeth as early as possible with something that resembles your natural teeth to the maximum. With recent developments in dentistry, a number of options are now available to the patients to choose from.

Dental bridges are meant to replace missing teeth by "bridging" the gap between two remaining teeth. This involves creation of a pontic, or false tooths with a dental crown on either side. The crowns are fitted over the remaining teeth to hold the false tooth in place. When there are only teeth on one side of the gap, cantilever bridges may be given. cantilever bridges consist of two side-by-side crowns and only one is connected to the pontic.

A fixed bridge helps to Replace missing tooth/teeth. Helps balance a normal bite. Helps prevent undesirable stress on the dental ridge. Prevents over-eruption of the opposing teeth. Prevents drift and tilt of adjacent teeth. Prevents tooth decay in adjacent drifted teeth Retards onset of gum diseases To design a bridge, the dentist must reshape the teeth to make room for the crowns. The dentist then makes a mold of the teeth. This mold is then sent off to a laboratory, where the actual crowns and bridge are made. With such care, bridges can last up to several years. However, improper or infrequent brushing and flossing, irregular dental visits, and excessive sugar and starch intake can all bring untimely damage to the bridge

Metal bridges with acrylic facing or adora facing are cost effective, but with quick wear & tear, metal ceramic bridges and metal free ceramic has almost replaced the older esthtically unacceptable metal brides. For the finest esthetic results all ceramic crowns like e-max,ips impress and cerconium crowns are the recent advancements.
