Differences between Different Types of Dental Bridges

Depending on the condition of your mouth, our dentists in Dubai will perform different types of dental procedures. While teeth cleaning, bonding, and cavity fillings are part of the routine sessions, more elaborate techniques are now normal and easy to complete. 

In addition to root canals and wisdom tooth removals, dental crowns are often needed as well, and come in many forms. Before separation between the different types of dental bridges, the dentist will explain to every patient the functions they serve.

Our Dubai dentists can offer proper treatment plans and suitable information if you are interested in dental bridges. You can also receive dental implants in Dubai. It is good to know that our dental clinics in Dubai are properly equipped with high-class technology.

Info about dental bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are used in modern dentistry to correct, resize or improve the form of a tooth. The dentist will cement them on the teeth or at the bottom of a detached tooth and they can only be removed, if the patient wants so, at a dental cabinet

dental bridge is a common, reasonable, low-risk time-tested treatment for missing teeth. The dental bridge is called so because it exactly bridges the gap produced when teeth are lost.

The classic bridge holds in place one or more artificial teeth, named pontics, which are detained in position by two dental crowns, or supports. 

Though the additional teeth used in bridges can be made from a variety of materials, including gold or silver amalgam, they are usually made from porcelain for aesthetic looks.

Are you wondering what are the benefits of dental implants in Dubai? We mention that this type of treatment is recommended for patients who want a solution for missing teeth and who want to regain the normal functions of the teeth. The installation of the implants is done with the help of the latest-generation technology, and the results are in line with the patient’s expectations. We also remember that dental x-rays will be needed before starting such treatment.

Different types of dental bridges

The benefits of dental bridges are regaining the smile, restoring the ability to correctly chew and talk, averting remaining teeth from flowing out of location, and maintaining the shape of your face.
Here are the main types of dental bridges and their details and specifications, used by our dentists in Dubai:

•    Traditional bridges mean making a crown for the tooth or graft on any side of the absent tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are the most common category of bridges and are made of either porcelain attached to ceramics or metal.
•    Maryland bonded bridges (also named a resin-bonded bridges or a Maryland bridges) are created with plastic teeth and gums maintained by a metal structure. Metal wings on each side of the bridge are attached to your current teeth.
•    Cantilever bridges are used when there are head-to-head teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth. Cantilever bridges are usually used to replace only one tooth.
•    When someone says “dental bridge,” most people will immediately think of crown-supported bridges. These crowns are positioned right on top of the injured tooth. 

Bridges can also be fixed to dental implants, which do not depend on natural teeth for sustenance. 
To attach this kind of restoration, the dentist in Dubai will surgically insert small biocompatible supports made of titanium in a patient’s jawbone, to secure the entire restoration. 

Dental implants are the only dental repairs that imitate the complete structure of missing teeth, counting the roots, making them strong. It is one of the most stable methods of fortifying bridges accessible in our dental clinics in Dubai.
