Dental Bridges

How are Dental Bridges Applied?

The first step of this application depends on the size and damage of the tooth, determining the procedures to follow. It is meticulously performed by our expert doctors at the Expert Dental Clinic. After the examination, the teeth are thinned and cut. During the application, the tooth is anesthetized, and then an impression is taken. A mold of the tooth is created with the impression paste prepared by our expert, and after the impression stage, a temporary bridge tooth is placed. The purpose of establishing a temporary bridge is to prevent the sensitization of the thinned teeth.

How Dental Bridges are Fitted

Molded teeth are sent to the laboratory for preparation. There may then be a waiting period of 3 to 10 days. When the teeth are ready, they go for an examination for fitting. During the fitting, characteristics such as deficiencies, excesses, dental comfort, and compatibility with the mouth are checked. If there is a problem, our doctor will solve it, and the bonding process will begin.

Traditional Bridge

This is a very simple procedure. Support is provided by attaching it to the teeth next to the problematic tooth, and some grinding is applied to the anchor teeth to fix the edges while the problematic tooth is treated. The aim is to fill the gaps and stabilize the damaged tooth. The greatest advantage of this method is that the view of the bridge is not obvious. It is very pleasing aesthetically.

Maryland (Winged) Bridge

In this procedure, also called the adhesive bridge, a bridge is made by bonding to the adjacent teeth. The artificial tooth replacing the missing tooth is invisibly attached behind the adjacent teeth. The back surface of the natural teeth on the sides is roughened, and glue is applied. Both sides of the artificial tooth are fixed by allowing these adhesives to pass through. The purpose is bridge surgery to avoid cutting healthy natural teeth.

Cantilever (Suspended) Bridge

Also known as the Balcony Bridge. This is a bridge placed only on one side of the damaged tooth if it is a natural tooth. This method is used when the patient does not want to use a denture.

The natural tooth next to the artificial tooth is cut and filed to make space for the cantilever bridge. The artificial tooth is then fixed to the natural tooth with an adhesive material.
