Tooth Bridge

It is placed between the two teeth to the right and left of the missing tooth. During this process, the two teeth to the right and left of the gap are reduced and the old tooth is closed with the bridge gap. Bridge dental treatment is one of the most preferred methods for the completion of missing teeth.

There are 3 types of bridges: traditional bridge, winged bridge and implant supported bridge.

Traditional Bridge

It is the method of using the teeth to the right and left of the missing tooth as bridge pillars to be fixed to the bridge by reducing them in size. The prepared bridge tooth is placed on these fixed teeth.

Winged Bridge

This is done by bonding the bridge to the neighboring teeth. The tooth prepared to fill the gap in the middle is bonded to the back of the neighboring teeth right next to the gap. Although the Maryland bridge, also known as the winged bridge, is a procedure performed without cutting the teeth on the right and left, it is less preferred for its durability.

Implant Supported Bridge

It is a type of bridge applied in case of loss of two or more teeth. In implant-supported bridges, there is no need to cut the teeth around the gaps. For this method, the implant bridge screwed into the jawbone of patients whose jaw bone structure is suitable for this method fills the missing teeth.
