Dental bridges

A dental bridge is created from multiple units or crowns merged into a single unit.

Bridges are commonly used when teeth in dental arch should be replaced or some teeth are very weak which means the others need to carry them. In order for the dentist to assess this situation and propose making the bridge, it is necessary to come in for an examination during which detailed diagnostics is performed and after this, the doctor can suggest to the patient what the best solution would be.

In Dental center Štimac we use the latest technology and methods for making dental bridges, and the dental laboratory in the polyclinic itself accelerates the process of creation and allows faster modifications if they are necessary.

What are dental bridges?

Bridges are a fixed prosthetic replacement and are made in situations when the patient suffers from one or more missing teeth but at the same time has a number of teeth which can be carriers and support the entire bridge. Bridges, as well as dental crowns, are made in our dental laboratory.

What material is used to make bridges?

In Dental center Štimac, bridges are made of the same material as the crown since a bridge is made of more members or a greater number of crowns.

Material for creating bridges are:

- Metal-ceramic
- Non-metal ceramic (zircon, e-max and empress)

Metal-ceramic bridges

Metal-ceramic bridges represent the type of prosthetic work where ceramics is connected with a metal base and today such crowns and bridges are standard in dental prosthetics because of their reasonable prices, excellent properties such as strength and durability and a solid aesthetic component. The metal base provides stability and strength to the teeth and ceramics imitate the shape and color of teeth.

Complete ceramic bridges

Bridges made entirely of ceramic represent the best solution for perfect aesthetics of teeth. Completely ceramic or zirconium bridges with their color, translucency, and transparency (way of deflecting and reflecting light) validate all optical characteristics of real teeth, resulting in a bridge that cannot be distinguished from the natural teeth. E-max and Empress ceramics which is used in the frontal (front) regions have a strength three times greater than tooth enamel so the possibility of such bridges cracking is minimal.

Metal-ceramic and full ceramic (zircon) bridges, equally functionally meet the needs of patients, but if the patient desires aesthetic perfection, then the best choice is a non-metal, zircon bridge that meets the highest standards when it comes to the aesthetic dentistry.

Dental bridges on implants

Thanks to today's achievements in dentistry, fixed work is possible in toothless jaws.

By installing four or six implants in one toothless jaw, it is possible to create a fixed work or a fixed bridge of 10 or 12 pieces (crowns) where the patient is given a full sense of naturalness and functionality of natural teeth and can normally eat and drink after the work is completed.

Testimonials

Great thanks to Dr. Štimac and her team! A wonderful person, a beautiful smile and kind and ready to listen and give honest advice to what is the best and most long-term option for her patients! I had to replace my old bridges a year ago and I was at the first annual control since the work was done and I cannot describe how happy I was with their work! All recommendations to her and her team.

V.T.

I am registered with the doctor through national health insurance but I had larger work done in the same office. Very professional! She is ready to answer any of my questions which is actually the reason I have been going only to her for years. I had problems with my teeth and was forced to have a fixed bridge placed in order to protect my teeth and the job was done perfectly. Three years have passed since then and a few days ago I had a control examination and I have absolutely no objections whatsoever! All thanks to the doctor and her team.

How does the procedure of installing bridges look like and how long does it last? t

The procedure of creating bridges begins by abrading the teeth which will be included in the bridge. Imprints are taken off the abraded teeth and are taken to the dental laboratory where the process of creating the bridge begins. Temporary teeth are created at the same time (provisional teeth) so while waiting for the final dental bridge, the patient would have a temporary solution in the mouth.

The time necessary to create fixed bridges depends on the size of the bridge or the number of crowns being made. Most often, through 3-4 working days, the bridge can be completed and then the patient comes in for the probe.

If additional corrections are necessary, they can be done during the same visit at our dental laboratory. After the probe, the final date is arranged where the patient will have the bridge permanently cemented and the entire treatment is finished.

What is the duration of bridges? t

Bridges are permanent and fixed prosthetic replacements. The term off, in medical terms, refers to the period between 10 and 15 years. The lifetime of dental bridges, as well as crowns is different in each patient and depends on several factors such as:

- The quality of the material
- The experience and skill of the dentist
- Correctly made bite imprint
- Relation in between teeth
- Regular checkups with the dentist.

In order for the bridge to last as long as possible, it is important to practice daily oral hygiene. For proper oral health, it is recommended to use a toothbrush, dental floss, rinsing water and inter-dental brushes. Regular and proper cleaning of the teeth can impact the duration of prosthetic replacements, including crowns.

In addition, the durability of bridges depends on genetics but also the gums and bones. Over the years there may be receding of gums and also the bone and that can get to the root or to the mobility of the natural teeth which is difficult for the dentist to foresee. Regular visits can help the dentist see the changes in time and warn the patient.

What if the tooth decays under the bridge? t

The tooth below the crown cannot decay in terms of a cavity but an infection can occur.
In the case of an infection and tooth begins to hurt, there are two possibilities. One is to remove the bridge or part of the bridge and start treating the tooth and the second is to drill the crown on the bridge where the infection is visible, and through it to get to the infection and start treatment.

What if my gums get infected above the bridge? t

If there is an infection of the gums, it is very important to visit the dentist as soon as possible to find and to remove the cause of the infection. Most often the patient after an examination receives an antibiotic that calms the infection and there is no need for further treatment.

Does the creation of a bridge hurt? t

Our system of work is that all procedures are done under local anesthesia. To be able to perform precise procedures, the patient must be completely calm and relaxed, and this can happen only if they feel no pain.

What is the warranty on the bridge? t

Dental center Štimac gives a five years warranty on all prosthetic work. The term prosthetic work refers to the cracking of crowns, bridges, and veneers.
It is important to mention that the key factor the warranty includes is regular checkups. Required checkups are once a year for all patients for timely prevention and care of dental health, even when it comes to smaller dental work.

What material is better for the creation of a bridge? t

Metal-ceramics and non-metal ceramics are excellent materials for making fixed prosthetic replacements and are very strong which is why you can bite and chew as with your natural teeth.

Metal-ceramic is the oldest material, while non-metal ceramic is a new material that offers the highest possible level of aesthetics. The biggest disadvantage of metal-ceramics is that through the years, they can begin to sift metal and you can see the gray edge along the gums, which is not acceptable for many patients. For this reason, the recommendation that our doctors of dental medicine often give to patients is to use non-metal ceramic crowns for the front region and metal ceramic for the back.
