What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental Bridge: Dental bridges are considered one of the most important and easiest modern methods for treating the problem of missing teeth in the mouth, which most people resort to because it is less expensive than dental implants. It consists of several parts assembled together to cover the space in the mouth. Bridges are usually made of zirconia and porcelain or a mixture of gold and metal together. A mold is designed from these materials that fits perfectly over the teeth and is connected together to fill the gaps between the teeth.

Types of Dental Bridges

There are several types of dental bridges, each with its own advantages. Among the most important and best types are the following:

Traditional Bridge: This bridge is one of the most widespread and popular types because of its low cost. It consists of an artificial tooth and two adjacent crowns on either side to fix it. Traditional bridges are usually made of ceramic or metal-ceramic and are strong enough to be replaced. However, there is a downside to the traditional bridge: when placing the crowns on the adjacent teeth, the tooth enamel must be prepared, which is irreversible.

Cantilever Bridge: Also known as the remote bridge, it is similar to the traditional bridge, where the natural teeth are present on one side of the missing tooth. It is used to replace teeth in the front area of the mouth and should not be used for back teeth because of the excessive pressure on a single tooth, which can cause complications such as tooth fracture or crown loss.

Maryland Bridge: Also known as the bonded bridge, it is used to replace teeth in the front area of the mouth and consists of a metal or ceramic frame. It differs from traditional bridges in that it consists of an artificial tooth and a metal wing bonded to the back of the adjacent teeth, without the need to grind or damage them. However, a downside is that it is not as durable as traditional bridges, as its strength comes from the bonding material that holds it together.

Implant-Supported Bridge: Dental implants are considered one of the most long-lasting types. These bridges are used in cases of missing teeth and can withstand the pressure placed on them. The bridge is installed by placing a pontic suspended between two crowns supported by implants. This type takes months to install.

Steps for Installing a Dental Bridge

Get rid of friction and fatigue with our custom-designed dental bridge that fits the structure and function of your mouth perfectly. It is not always necessary to perform a root canal before installing crowns on the teeth, as it largely depends on the patient’s dental health and the need for any other procedures. Based on this, the dental bridge installation process consists of several steps, which can be detailed as follows:

First Session: The dentist prepares the teeth and mouth for the installation of the new teeth, especially the teeth adjacent to the gap that needs to be filled. These teeth need to be ground to fix the crowns on their outer surface.

Second Session: In this stage, the dentist bonds the bridge after receiving it from the dental lab, where it is made to perfectly fit the size and shape of the teeth. The patient must pay attention to oral hygiene and adhere to proper care after the bridge installation.

After Dental Bridge Installation

After installing a dental bridge, the patient is expected to experience some minor side effects, such as discomfort or pain in the mouth or signs of gum swelling and bleeding, which may be accompanied by pain and discomfort. However, these symptoms can be controlled with medication and pain relievers prescribed by the doctor, and the patient’s adherence to the necessary post-operative instructions.
