What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge in Turkey is a dental device where one or more custom-made replacement teeth fill the space where one or more neighbouring teeth are missing. A dental bridge in Turkey is a fixed orthodontic appliance made up of several artificial teeth connected together. This type of construction is attached to the supporting teeth on either side of the missing teeth.

Today, dental bridges in Turkey are the most popular dental restoration technique. In this article, you’ll find out about the materials used to make dental bridges, the procedure for fitting them and the cost of bridgework in dental clinics in Istanbul.

Fitting dental bridges

Bridges at dental centres in Turkey (Antalya, Marmaris, Istanbul and Fethiye) are made by experienced orthodontists using state-of-the-art materials.

Thanks to the exceptional qualifications of our Turkish dentists, their ability to work with modern equipment and their individual approach to each patient, you can expect an ideal result from dental treatment in Turkey, which consists of achieving the long-awaited beautiful smile, restoring the functional capabilities of the teeth and regaining the patient’s self-confidence.

Indications for the use of dental bridges

  • Slight or moderate deficiencies in the inner and front rows of teeth (up to 4 teeth);
  • Absence of a single molar in the chewing area.

The patient must have healthy support teeth capable of bearing a sufficient load. Otherwise, dental implantation must be carried out before a dental bridge is fixed.

Contraindications for the use of dental bridges:

  • Bruxism ;
  • Severe inflammation of the oral cavity or throat (stomatitis, gingivitis, sore throat: temporary contraindication);
  • Absence of more than one molar, three or more premolars or four teeth in the smile area;
  • Occlusal pathologies;
  • Osteoporosis and other diseases of the bone tissues of the jaw;
  • Severe periodontal disease ;
  • Periodontitis ;
  • Pathological dental attrition.

Stages in the installation of a dental bridge in Turkey

  • Examination of the oral cavity. The Turkish dentist examines the teeth that will be masked by the crown. These teeth must be healthy and able to withstand the increased chewing load.
  • Preparation. If the retention teeth are destroyed, the dentist removes their pulp, fills the canals and, if necessary, reinforces the teeth with inlays. If the bridge is made on healthy retention teeth, removal of the nerves is not a compulsory measure.
  • Face to face. In the case of metal-ceramic bridges, a thick layer of enamel must be removed, whereas non-metal bridges require only minimal facing.
  • Manufacture of moulds. Moulds of the upper and lower jaws are taken and sent to the laboratory.
  • Manufacture of dental bridges. This procedure takes one to two weeks, depending on the materials used and the complexity of the work. During this time, a temporary prosthesis is fitted in the smile area.
  • Try-in. The bridge is fixed and adjusted.

Types of materials for dental bridges

Dental bridges can be made of metal, ceramic, metal-ceramic or zirconium dioxide. The aesthetic appearance, price, strength and durability depend directly on the material chosen.

  • Metal dental bridges are practically out of fashion these days: despite their strength and low price, they do not have sufficient aesthetic properties and can cause destruction of the retaining teeth.
  • Metal-ceramic dental bridges are strong, reliable and safe. These are ceramic constructions on a metal framework. These bridges have a natural appearance and offer optimum value for money.
  • Plastic dental bridges are lightweight, economical and hypoallergenic, and are fixed for a relatively short period. Their low durability and rapid manufacture mean that they can be used as a temporary measure to eliminate deficiencies in rows of teeth.
  • Zirconium dental bridges are artificial ceramic teeth on a zirconium dioxide framework. They are fairly light and strong, exert minimal pressure on the retaining teeth and are capable of withstanding greater loads. Zirconium bridges are aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking, hypoallergenic and completely biocompatible with human tissue.

Which is better: dental implants or bridges?

The technique of restoring teeth with dental bridges has been known in Istanbul, Turkey for over 30 years, so patients prefer such constructions to implants. Dental bridges are a good alternative todental implants, but are nevertheless inferior to them.

Advantages of dental bridges :

  • The procedure does not require surgery and is not associated with a long rehabilitation period or the risk of the implant not surviving.
  • The bridge takes 2 to 4 weeks to complete, whereas implantation would take up to 4 months.
  • Once the bridge is fixed, the feeling of discomfort lasts no more than 3 days (for dental implantation, the corresponding period is 2 weeks).
  • A bridge is the only option where there is minimal space between adjacent teeth. In this case, implants cannot be placed.

Advantages of dental implants :

  • Implants can be used for life (in Turkey, we use high-quality “Nobel Biocare” titanium implants for which a guarantee is given). At the same time, bridges have a limited lifespan and must be replaced at the end of this period. The short lifespan of these prostheses is explained by the properties of the material used to attach the crowns.
  • No surfacing or pulp removal is required.
  • Dental implants eliminate the problems associated with bone tissue atrophy, as they help to load the bone, whereas dental bridges lead to the destruction of bone tissue that is not subjected to regular loading.

Appropriate care for dental bridges

  • Properly clean your dental bridge in Turkey twice a day.
  • To clean dental bridges, you need to pay particular attention to the inner surface, which is in contact with the gums and interdental spaces (you can use a toothbrush with a single row of bristles or dental floss).
  • When cleaning your teeth, hold the toothbrush at a 45° angle and make sweeping movements to remove as many food particles and plaque as possible.
  • A toothbrush with a single row of bristles or dental floss can be used with a small amount of toothpaste.
  • After cleaning the dental bridge, use a little mouthwash, but remember that this liquid cannot replace the above procedure.

Following all these recommendations will help to prolong the life of your dental bridge and protect your patient’s health.

Maintenance of removable and fixed dental bridges should be carried out using sensitive cleaners to avoid damaging the surface of the appliance. If the bridge has been damaged, do not attempt to repair it yourself – contact your dentist immediately.
