Dental Bridge: Material Choice

A dental bridge is a restorative dental procedure used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of one or more artificial teeth (called pontics) supported by adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. 

This treatment is used to replace missing teeth, whether they are missing from birth (dental agenesis) or have been removed by the dentist for various reasons.

Dental bridges can be classified according to the material used, such as:

  • Metal bridge: usually placed in the posterior teeth because of its unsightly color.
  • Metal-ceramic bridge: the metal coping is covered with ceramic.
  • Ceramic bridge: made entirely of ceramic.

What types of dental bridges are available?

There are several types of dental bridges available in our clinics in Turkey. These dental bridges are classified according to the technique used to secure them:

Dental bridge type

Characteristics

Traditional (or fixed) dental bridge 

This type of bridge is supported by the natural teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. The adjacent teeth are trimmed to receive the crowns that support the bridge. 

Removable dental bridge 

Unlike fixed bridges, which are cemented into place, a removable dental bridge can be removed and replaced by the patient.

This type of bridge usually consists of a metal or pink resin base that rests on the gums and artificial teeth attached to the base to replace missing teeth. 

Cantilever dental bridge 

This bridge is similar to a traditional bridge but is attached to a single adjacent natural tooth instead of two. This can be useful when only one natural tooth is available for support. 

Maryland dental bridge 

Also known as a wing bridge, this type of bridge is attached to the back of adjacent teeth using metal or resin wings, rather than being supported by crowns. 

Implant-supported bridge 

This type of bridge is attached to dental implants that are inserted into the jawbone, rather than being supported by natural teeth. It provides a more stable solution and can be used when several teeth are missing in a row.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges offer many advantages, including:

  • A natural, long-lasting aesthetic result by matching the color of natural teeth.
  • Help restore function to the mouth, promoting proper chewing and speech.
  • Improve the appearance of the smile by filling in the gaps left by missing teeth.
  • Helps prevent the remaining teeth from shifting while maintaining the alignment of the teeth.
  • Can last for many years with proper care.

However, there are some disadvantages to a dental bridge:

  • Bridgework requires the preparation of adjacent teeth, which can weaken them.
  • It may not be suitable for patients with significant bone loss in the jaw because they need a stable base for support.
  • Implant-supported bridges offer a more stable and secure solution but can be more expensive and require surgery to place the implant.
  • Risk of infection, implant failure, or tooth pain.

How does a dentist in Turkey install a dental bridge?

The process of installing a dental bridge usually begins with a visit to the dentist for a thorough examination.

The dentist will assess the condition of the missing tooth, the health of the surrounding teeth and gums, and the jawbone. X-rays may be taken to evaluate bone density and structure. If the dentist determines that a dental bridge is the right treatment option, the next step is to prepare the abutment teeth.

The dentist makes a dental impression with a paste that is sent to the dental technician. The final step is to secure the bridge in place.

Frequently asked questions

Dental bridge: a fixed prosthesis intended to replace one or more missing teeth (dental agenesis).

The lifespan of a generic dental bridge varies between 5 and 15 years. If the wearer takes care of their oral hygiene, the chances of the dental bridge lasting at least ten years are quite high.

The bridge is a dental prosthesis made up of 3 crowns or more (false teeth) which makes it possible to fill the space left by a lost tooth. The 2 teeth next to the missing one are filed down and made smaller so that they act as pillars of the bridge. The prosthesis will then be bonded to these two teeth.

Dental bridges, which are single fixed prostheses, are frequently used to fill the void left by one or more lost teeth. It is one of the most popular dental surgery operations and ensures an excellent result so that you cannot tell the difference from the surrounding natural teeth.
