Permanent dental bridge - High quality, low cost!

What is a dental bridge?

Dental bridges serve as a replacement of missing teeth, and are supported by the patient’s own teeth or implants. It is not recommended to use an implant and an own tooth as pillars for the same bridgework. The structure should be based either on only implants or only own teeth. The bridge is made up of two or more units that are joint together thus bridging the missing teeth. The anchoring teeth are sometimes called abutment teeth – between these are false tooth/teeth called pontics.
The structure is cemented onto the still existing and strong enough teeth or the implants.

Advantages

The major advantage of bridges is that they are quick and reasonably inexpensive solutions for replacing missing teeth. Beside, they are almost identical to your natural teeth.
They have very similar physical attributes to natural teeth and when all-ceramic materials are used they have a natural translucence.

Disadvantages

In general, the drawbacks of conventional bridges supported by native teeth are that the teeth must be shaped or ground down so that they can serve as pillars. Furthermore the structure may overload the supporting teeth.

What are they made of?

Bridges can be made from different kinds of materials. In the past the most frequently used material was metal. Nowadays more attention is paid to the bridge’s aesthetic and biological characteristics: PORCELAIN BRIDGES FUSED TO METAL are being replaced with zirconium-based all-ceramic dental bridges.
Ceramic materials are also hypoallergenic and unlike bridges with a metal core they do not corrode: as a result they do not leach any substances. All-ceramic materials with zirconium do not suffer from the electro-galvanic interaction that occurs between metals and the human body.

The preparation of bridges

The preparation of dental bridges requires a few days but the exact length of the procedure is subject to the volume of work and the chosen material.

On the first day the teeth that will serve as pillars are prepared. Preparation involves reshaping these teeth in order to allow room for the bridge to be placed over them. Impressions are taken on the first day to allow the dental technicians to start as soon as possible. Meanwhile, temporary teeth are made for you by the dentist to protect the prepared teeth until you receive your permanent bridge.

Before the final bridge is ready, the fit of the frame or the model is checked rigorously during various stages of the procedure. After necessary small adjustments are made, the bridge is fitted permanently. Articulation comes last, during which the dentist makes sure that the surfaces of the teeth are correctly adjusted to one another; and that the bite is perfect and even. The multiple checks during the procedure are designed to verify the fitting of the bridge and to check the biting position. They also permit discussion of the aesthetic aspects with the patient and the laboratory in order to achieve the optimal result by taking the patient’s opinion into consideration.
