What are dental bridges?

If you have missing teeth, the solution for it is easily dental bridges. Dental bridges can fill in the gaps in your smile, be it one or multiple teeth. A dental bridge is a false tooth, otherwise known as a pontic, that is held in its place thanks to the end piece which is a tooth, on each side of the gap. Though pontics can be made from different types of material like gold, they’re commonly made from porcelain so they aesthetically blend in with the real teeth.

Who needs a dental bridge?

Dental bridges, as mentioned, can help when you in cases your teeth are missing. Among the most known causes of missing teeth are tooth decay, gum disease, and traumas (injuries or accidents). You might have been born with missing teeth because of congenital conditions. 

When do I need a dental bridge?

It is commonly known among the wide public that teeth work together, so when a tooth is missing, nearby teeth can move into the space to “fill in” the gaps. Additionally, the teeth in the opposite jaw can also move up or down the space. As a result, there could be:

  • Biting problems
  • Chewing difficulties
  • Pain from the extra work on the teeth and jaw
  • Low confidence about the way you look or smile

What does a dental bridge look like?

A typical dental bridge has two phases:

  • Abutment teeth: a specialized dentist places two crowns on the teeth on either side of the gap. These supporting teeth, can either be your real teeth or dental implants.
  • Pontics: false teeth or teeth which fill in gaps and attach to the crown.

Types of dental bridges based on the support technique

The four main types of dental bridges are the following:

  • Traditional fixed bridge:

Traditional fixed bridges are the most famous technique of all. What they essentially do is connect more than two crowns and a filler tooth. They are made out of metal, porcelain infused with metal, or even ceramics.

  • Cantilever bridge:

In this type of bridge, the pontic is only connected to one abutment tooth. It is a possible solution for those people who have only one tooth remaining on one side of the gap.

  • Maryland dental bridge: 

This is the best solution for those people missing front teeth. The Maryland dental bridge offers you the chance to get a bridge made out of resin, as per its other name, resin-bonded bridge. It is a bridge made out of porcelain infused with metal or ceramic, supported by a framework. The wings settled on each side of the bridge adapt with the natural teeth.

  • Implant-supported bridge:

Just like its name says implant-supported bridges are supported thanks to implants. They are very similar to the traditional fixed bridges, with the only difference being that the bridge is held in place by implants and is not cemented.

Types of dental bridges based on their material

Metal-ceramic: more expensive than metal-acrylic and much cheaper than all-ceramic.

Zirconia: the frame is a mix of zirconium oxide capped with porcelain.

All-ceramic: the frame does not include a metal core and it is built out of porcelain. They are the newest type of dental bridges, but not commonly used due to their relatively high cost and reduced strength.

Metal-acrylics: though they are an economical option they have low endurance.

Metal bridges: are rarely used nowadays despite their longevity and low cost, because of their aesthetics. They are mostly made entirely of metal (usually gold).

What does a dental bridge cost?

There exist several variables that can affect the price of dental bridges, among others:

  • The number of teeth needed to fill in the gap
  • The materials used (composite resin, zirconia, metal allow covered in resin)
  • The complexity or difficulty of the placement
  • The additional treatments for other dental issues (like, gum disease)

However, it is to be noted that in our clinic, due to its location in Tirana, Albania, the prices are quite affordable. This comes as a result of the low taxes and salaries in Albania, which also affect the prices of dentary services.

Which is the procedure for dental bridges?

You’ll be needing at least two appointments when it comes to your dental bridges:

  • Abutment teeth preparation: this means that during the first visit, your dentist reshapes the abutment teeth. The removal of a part of the enamel and the dentin is done, so the space for the crown can be created.
  • Impressions: your dentist takes impressions of your teeth. The impression/ scan will be used as a model to create your bridge. The whole time during which the permanent bridge will be built, the patient will have to use a temporary bridge.
  • Permanent bridge placement: this happens during the second visit. The temporary bridge was dismissed by a permanent one. The dentist carefully checks the bridge and makes the needed adjustments to it so it can fit perfectly and not cause any discomfort.

In more detail, how are dental bridges made?

After the orthodontist had decided on the diagnosis, following the patient’s needs, to resolve the lack of dental data with the dental bridge, the below steps will follow:

  1. The curvature of the remaining teeth: Following the anesthesia, the dentist grinds the adjacent teeth.
  2. Receiving the mold: The orthodontist will take molds from your mouth to send them to the person who will build the dental bridge.
  3. Temporary resin: Depending on the diagnostic model, temporary bridges will be made to create ground support for the time required until the permanent bridge is constructed.
  4. Metal test: Tests are done to see if the metal structure needs any adjustments or corrections.
  5. Color test: The patient’s teeth color is taken and sent back to the lab.
  6. Bridge test: The bridge is tested completely and there are made necessary changes. The orthodontist then sends the dental bridges to the dental technician for the last details of finishing and polishing them.
  7. Gluing the bridge: The braces are sharpened with the help of a unique toothpaste and the tooth bridge is inserted into the mouth.
  8. Subsequent checks: As per every other intervention in the mouth, implant bridges require constant checks to see if everything is in place and working properly.

Prerequisites before the placement of dental bridges

The dentist will be the one assessing whether dental bridges are the right solution among other alternatives by first examining and checking if the existing teeth meet the appropriate requirements, to achieve safe placement and to deal with any conditions with other treatments. In this case:

  • It is a requirement to have teeth on both sides of the space, so the bridge can be supported on both ends.
  • The natural teeth on which the bridge will be supported must be healthy and solid. If there is any case of caries in the tooth or if it is not stable and solid, it cannot be used as a support for the bridge,
  • The number of consecutive missing teeth should not be large.
  • There should not be present signs of periodontal disease or gingivitis. Before a print can be taken to build the dental bridge, these diseases should be fully cured.
  • Oral hygiene should not be neglected and if there are any indications of neglect, it should be acknowledged that the longevity of dental bridges will be shorter. Oral hygiene is a must even after getting dental bridges to prolong their endurance.

Nonetheless, our team is at your service to help solve any dental issues you have and assist you with every problem that might be a retreat for dental bridge placement.
