The Doctor will often consider dental bridges for people who have missing teeth and practice good oral hygiene.
If you have spaces created by missing teeth, your remaining teeth may begin to shift out of position and become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Typically, there are several kinds of dental bridges:
Traditional Fixed Bridge
A fixed bridge is a false tooth fused between two porcelain crowns and is used to fill in an area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns, which hold the false tooth, are attached to the teeth on each side of the missing tooth. A fixed bridge can replace one or more missing teeth and cannot be removed like a partial denture.
Implant Supported Fixed Bridge or Crown
An implant supported bridge or crown is just a crown or bridge attached to an implant system where there is not a natural tooth available or you wish to replace a missing tooth without requiring the crowning of a healthy tooth on either side of the missing tooth.
Resin Bonded Bridges
Resin bonded bridges are used primarily on the front teeth. This bridge is most successful when the surrounding teeth are healthy and don’t have large fillings. The false tooth is fused to metal bands that are bonded to the abutment teeth with a resin which is hidden from view. Resin bonded bridges reduce the amount of preparation on the adjacent teeth.
Cantilever bridges are considered for areas of your mouth that are under less stress, such as your front teeth. Cantilever bridges are used when there are teeth on only one side of the open space. This procedure involves anchoring the false tooth to one side over one or more natural and adjacent teeth.
You do not need a dental implant for each and every one of your missing teeth. All you need is four precisely placed implants on the top of your mouth, and four on the bottom, to restore your full smile. That’s the beauty of the all-on-four. And because the implant is made of titanium, it has the unique ability to fuse to living bone and function as part of it. So eventually, the dental implant becomes part of the jawbone and serves as a strong, long-lasting foundation for your new teeth
