Dental Bridges are useful as corrective measures for things such as after an accident or for serious dental decay. These restorations are generally made of porcelain or a composite material and are used to replace missing teeth, they are used as a method by which to not only restore your bite but also to create a pleasant smile.
It can sometimes takes a great deal of time to both prepare the area and then affix the bridge once it comes back from the lab. Fixed bridges are placed on the neighboring teeth, so they span the site of the missing tooth filling in the gap. The bridge is fitted with ceramic teeth to replicate the teeth you are missing, to restore function and to bring you back to a great aesthetic smile. Removable bridges, such as full or partial, are recommended for complex dental situations to help restore support and proper function for the patient. These full or partial removable bridges are constructed of ceramic and metal and require the creation of a study model made from impressions of your mouth, this is so it fits perfectly and looks great too. This bridge is also fitted with ceramic teeth to replicate the missing teeth and combined with metal that is shaped to fit the inside contours of the mouth for a precise and secure fit. Multiple visits are usually required so we can make adjustments to the bite and fit of the appliance. Fixed bridges require meticulous and routine cleaning, usually with a threading floss. Removable bridgework also requires meticulous and routine cleaning after meals, soaking them in a solution to remove plaque and bacteria is the best way to clean removable bridgework.
