partial dentures) are useful as corrective measures after an accident or serious dental decay. These restorations(generally
made of porcelain or a composite material) are used to replace missing teeth. Bridges are a method by which to restore
your bite and create a pleasant smile. It also takes a great deal of time to both prepare the area and affix the bridge
once it comes back from the lab. Fixed bridges are placed on the neighboring teeth, so they span the site of the missing
tooth or teeth. The bridge is fitted with ceramic teeth to replicate the missing teeth and to restore function and aesthetics.
Removable bridges(removable partial dentures) are recommended in complex
dental situations to restore support and proper function. These bridges are constructed of ceramic and metal and require
the creation of a study model made from impressions. The bridge is also fitted with ceramic teeth to replicate the missing
teeth and combined with metal that is shaped to fit the inside contours of the mouth. Multiple visits are required for
adjustments to the bite and fit of the appliance.
bridges require meticulous cleaning usually with a threading floss. Removable bridgework requires meticulous cleaning
after meals and soaking in a solution to remove plaque and bacteria.
