Dental Bridge

Treatment Description:

bridgeWhat is a dental Bridge?

Dental Bridges allow for the reconstruction of missing teeth by using the patient's own remaining teeth. The pillar teeth (the own ones) are crowned, and the missing teeth between the pillar teeth are supplemented in the form of a "bay" installed between the crowns of the pillar teeth. The bridges are a type of permanent prosthetic restorations, so such that is permanently fixed in the mouth using the teeth - after cementing by a physician, it is not possible to remove the bridges by yourself.



What are the benefits of the dental Bridges?

There are many benefits provided by the Dental Bridges in Budapest. They include:

- Bridges transmit chewing forces in a physiological manner, to the pillar teeth, which makes them easy to accept and provides great comfort - you do not feel the difference while chewing with teeth fillings, you also do not feel difference while chewing with your dental Bridges on.
- Dental Bridges are fixed, which also facilitates their acceptance and improves the comfort
- Dental Bridges are aesthetic additions (they are made with the use of porcelain crowns) - properly constructed bridge does not stands out while smiling

Because of these advantages, the Dental Bridges are an excellent alternative to removable dentures whenever it is possible to install the bridges.

Are there any disadvantages of the dental Bridges?

Yes, there are a few disadvantages, for instance:

- the need to grind and crown the pillar teeth
- the atrophy of the bone (bone disappears when it is not stimulated by the chewing forces)

What are the recommendations for the Bridges?

The most common indication for dental bridges are interdental gaps. This means that one side of the tooth gap must be eligible as a pillar of the bridge. It can not be performed if a pillar tooth is missing. For example, you can not rebuild your sixth tooth with the bridge, if the last one is the fifth. In this situation the solution are implants or removable dentures.

Is the treatment painful?

The preparation for the Dental Bridge requires teeth grinding and polishing. When the teeth are alive, the procedure is performed under local anesthesia, so it is completely painless. In the case of dead teeth after the root canal treatment, there is no need for anesthesia.

What is the point in the bridge? What does it mean three-point bridge?

A point of a bridge is a prosthetic crown. Thus, three-point bridge will consist of three crowns - two pillars and one in the bay (the missing one). Similarly, four-point bridge will consist of four crowns, two pillars and two recovering the missing teeth.

I have a dental bridge. Can I replace it with implants?

Yes, you can perform implants Budapest in place of missing teeth, previously supplemented by a bridge. But keep in mind that after removing the bridge, the pillar teeth will remain and will require crowns. So the crowns will be installed on on every ground tooth, while in the gap under the bridge, implants can be installed.
