The main problem that can occur with your teeth is their loss. Currently tooth replacement procedures are performed almost in every dental health clinics and centers by professional dentists and sophisticated equipment. False teeth, also called dentures, are required in the cases if it is impossible to save maximum amount of teeth structure or they were lost due to the accidents or diseases. The false tooth plays an important cosmetic role; as well it is required for the general state of human health, because missing tooth may cause some problems with chewing and therefore leads to gastrointestinal digestion. Moreover, missed tooth spoils the natural balance of the jaw and bite; other teeth move and become crooked.
A dental bridge is the way out, if a patient has one or more teeth lost, but they are surrounded by the healthy teeth on both sides of the space. These teeth will be like abutment ones and will help to fix the false teeth between them. This is a traditional fixed bridge that is most common. The dentures are fused with two ceramic crowns and are affixed to the healthy teeth on the left and right sides from the gap. Traditional bridge cannot be taken out from the mouth. With maintaining oral health this bridge will serve for many years without any problems.
On the places in the mouth there is no heavy bite and with less stress, the bonded bridge can be used. A bonded bridge is frequently used for replacing front teeth. Such constructions are called sometimes resin bonded bridges. False tooth is bonded with abutment teeth by metal wings or bands with the help of resin cement that is not noticeable. A bonded bridge placing is not so expensive procedure as in case with traditional bridges, because the preparation of the abutment teeth is not so careful and it is easier to accommodate and the procedure does not take much time.
One more type of bonded bridge is cantilever bridges. The principle of usage is like with traditional group, but in this case the abutment tooth is only one, at the one side from the space where the false teeth will sit. The false tooth or teeth are fixed with the help of one adjacent tooth. Like bonded bridge, cantilever bridges are used in the areas of the mouth that are not so stressed while chewing, for example, on the front teeth.
The choice of the bonded bridge depends usually on every separate situation. You can take the method only after advising with your dentist, who will offer the best solutions. Of course, patients also should check the prices and decide what exactly bridge and from what material he or she can afford. The teeth replacement procedure for a bonded bridge is considered to be expensive, because it requires high qualification of a dentist, expensive materials and sophisticated equipment for producing dentures.
Prevention of teeth diseases is required since childhood: regular brushing twice a day, flossing, timely medical observation and application to a dentist even without feeling any discomfort will prevent you from spoiling and losing the teeth.
