Dental Bridge

imageAn inexpensive solution to replace missing teeth in Ranchi is a dental bridge. When someone wants to replace a missing tooth but is unable to have dental implants because of expense or health concerns, a dental bridge is recommended. The space caused by a missing tooth or teeth is filled with a dental bridge, a specially constructed fake tooth or teeth that is anchored permanently between two good teeth. The healthy teeth on either side of the area have crowns placed on them to hold the bridge in place.

  2. A bridge made entirely of porcelain

Procedure for Treating Dental Bridges

At the first appointment for a dental bridge, the abutment teeth are created. As part of the arrangement, these teeth are recontoured by removing some of their enamel to make room for a crown to be placed on top of them. Then, impressions of the teeth are taken, serving as a model for a dental lab to use in creating the bridge, pontic, and crowns. While the bridge is being made, your dentist will make a temporary bridge that you can wear to conceal the exposed teeth and gums.

Your temporary bridge will be removed during the second appointment, and the new porcelain or metal bridge will be examined and adjusted as necessary to get the proper fit. It can take several visits to monitor the metal structure's attack and bite. This depends on each person's circumstances. In order to make sure the dental bridge is fitting properly, your dentist may temporarily cement it in place for a few weeks if it is a fixed bridge. The bridge is put in place after a few of weeks.
