Fixed Porcelain Bridges
Losing even just one tooth has several significant effects. Tooth loss can be caused by several different issues, including facial trauma, severe tooth decay, bruxism, and more. No matter what causes your tooth loss, the event can lead to several significant complications. At Florida Prosthodontics, we can replace a missing tooth, restoring the functions and aesthetics of your mouth, with a fixed bridge.
Effects of Missing Teeth
Missing teeth have several effects on your life:
What Is a Fixed Bridge?
A bridge is a restoration that can be used to replace up to three consecutive missing teeth. There are a few different types of bridges, with a fixed bridge being the most commonly used type. A fixed bridge involves the use of a pontic tooth, or replacement tooth, set between two dental crowns. The crowns are used to anchor the bridge into place on your adjacent healthy teeth, referred to as the abutment teeth.
Placing Your Fixed Bridge
Typically, a bridge takes two appointments to place. However, thanks to CAD/CAM technology, we can create it in just one visit. Getting your crown requires the preparation of your abutment teeth. This is the process of trimming the teeth or removing a portion of the enamel from each one. This is crucial for ensuring a proper and comfortable fit.
The Benefits of a Fixed Bridge
Fixed bridges offer several different benefits:
When you lose a tooth, even if it cannot be seen when you smile, it is crucial that you have it replaced as soon as possible. Call Florida Prosthodontics today at (321) 252-9950 to schedule your consultation.
