Miami dentists – Dr. Tal Morr

  1. 1. Solution of Dental Bridges
  2. 2. All of your teeth play an important role in speaking, chewing and in maintaining proper alignment of other teeth. Tooth loss doesn't necessarily have to occur as you age, but if you do lose teeth, they must be replaced to maintain proper function of your mouth. Fortunately, there are options for correcting tooth loss.
  3. 3. A bridge — a device used to replace missing teeth — attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges), or they can be removable. Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth or by bonding the artificial teeth directly to the abutment teeth. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth with metal clasps or by precision attachments.
  4. 4. A bridge (fixed partial denture) is a device, which fills the gap where teeth are absent. Fixed bridges are bonded into place and can only be removed by a dental professional. Removable bridges, as the name implies, can be taken out and cleaned. Fixed bridges offer more stability than their removable counterparts.
  5. 5. Oral functionality and appearance are important reasons for wearing a bridge. A bridge helps support your lips and cheeks. The loss of a back tooth may cause your mouth to sink and your face to look older. Dental health is the most important reason for a bridge. Teeth were designed to complement each other. Unusual stresses are placed on the gums and other oral tissues when teeth are missing, causing a number of potentially harmful disorders. Missing teeth can cause speech disorders as they are used to make many of the sounds we use to speak clearly.
  6. 6. The attachment procedure usually takes two or three appointments to complete. At the first appointment Dr. Tal Morr will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap by removing a portion of the enamel and dentin. Once the teeth are prepared, a provisional restoration will be fabricated to replace the missing tooth and reshape the prepared teeth. Since the bridge must be fabricated very precisely to ensure correct bite and to match the opposing tooth, impressions of the teeth are taken and sent to a lab where the bridge will be constructed. Fixed bridges are typically cemented to the natural teeth next to the space left by the missing tooth. A pontic (false tooth) replaces the lost tooth. Crowns, which are cemented onto the natural teeth, provide support for the bridge.
  7. 7. Bridges can be constructed from gold alloys, nonprecious alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Porcelain is often bonded to either precious or non-precious metal. In certain situations, we are now able to offer bridges made entirely of ceramic with no metal at all although this type of bridge is highly case selective.
  8. 8. A strict regimen of brushing and flossing will keep the bridge and surrounding teeth clean. This is of critical importance as the bridge relies on the neighboring teeth for support.
