HOW MUCH LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET A DENTAL BRIDGE?
There are many people in the world having a presence of missing teeth. For such people, the dentist may prefer to have dental bridges. They are able to bridge the gap created by a single or multiple missing teeth. Dental bridges can prevent the residual teeth from drifting out of position. Along with that, they can restore the capability to chew and speak properly. These false teeth are known as pontic and different types of materials can be used to make them like gold, porcelain, alloys or a mixture of such materials.
Types of Dental Bridges
There are three to four different kinds of dental bridges used by the dentist. They are traditional, Maryland, cantilever, and implant-supported. Talking about a traditional dental bridge, it proves to be the most popular type in the segment of dental bridge that consists of false teeth being grip in place by dental crowns that have been strengthened onto each of the abutment teeth. In regards to Maryland bonded bridges, they are also known as a resin-bonded bridge and employs a framework of either porcelain or metal which is tied against the backs of the abutment teeth.
Cantilever dental bridge, the pontic, or artificial tooth, is held by a dental crown which is cemented to a single abutment tooth and only a single tooth is required next to the missing tooth gap. This kind of a dental bridge can only be implemented when a person contains a natural tooth on each part of the gap caused by the absent tooth. The next one is the implant-supported dental bridge that is considered as the strongest and most stable method. There is a need for two surgeries where the first one will be done to embed the implants in the jawbone and the second one will be surgery to place the bridge.
