Dental bridges, also known as tooth bridges, are used to fill the gap of missing teeth in the patient’s jaw. In this method, which has been used in oral and dental health treatments for a long time, different dental bridges can be preferred. Treatments with dental bridges stand out especially in periods when implant treatment cannot be applied due to the structure of the patient’s jawbone. On the other hand, if there is an implant in the patient’s jawbone, a dental bridge can also be built on it.
What are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridge treatment is applied to eliminate the functional and aesthetic problems of the patient due to missing teeth. Dental bridges applied to compensate for missing teeth may not be suitable for everyone. Therefore, dental bridges made of porcelain that gives a more natural looking appearance, consist of:
The traditional bridge is one of the frequently preferred bridge methods. If the patient has natural teeth on both sides of the gap created by the missing tooth, a traditional bridge can be applied. In this method, some preparation is made on the anterior and posterior teeth by means of dental crowns adhered to the teeth on both sides. After taking the necessary measurements, a traditional bridge is produced accordingly.
An implant-supported bridge is applied by placing an implant in the jawbone for each missing tooth. In this way, the necessary infrastructure for the fixation of the bridge is prepared. If it is not possible to implant each missing tooth, a bridge can be applied between two implant-supported crowns. Since it is a two-stage treatment method, the treatment may take several months depending on the number of patient’s missing teeth.
Maryland dental bridge is preferred if the patient previously had a traditional dental bridge treatment. The bridge is applied after measuring the two natural teeth to which it will adhere. Dental bridges may differ according to the condition of each patient’s jawbone.
