Dental bridges use permanent artificial teeth ( pontics ) anchored with crowns to the adjacent (abutment) teeth. The abutment teeth are those teeth that take most of the stress during the chewing of food.
Important Facts about dental bridges
A dental bridge requires the support from those teeth which are situated either side of the gap left by the missing tooth. These two teeth are called 'abutment teeth'. A dental bridge is placed in such a way that it has a crown on two sides of it. The abutment teeth are shaped in such fashion that the crowns are a perfect fit. In the case where abutment teeth are broken down, or the gum affected, these will require restoration before the dental bridge can be placed.

Dental bridges types
There are three types of dental bridges: temporary, permanent and fixed. It should be mentioned that the temporary and permanent bridges do not necessarily need to be placed on both abutment teeth; there are situations when only one of the abutment teeth is used for this purpose.
- Temporary dental bridge
A temporary dental bridge is placed for a short period of time. One of our dentists here in Hungary will recommend the treatment which best suits the needs of the patient. When the temporary dental bridge is placed, the patient can adjust accordingly. In due time the dental bridge is removed and a permanent bridge is placed instead.
- A permanent dental bridge
A permanent dental bridge is cemented to the abutment teeth crowns so that it can be supported. With the help of the permanent dental bridge, the teeth are restored as good as new.
- A fixed dental bridge
A fixed dental bridge is the bridge of choice with the majority our patients. This dental bridge is placed in such a way that both of the abutment teeth are used for supporting the bridge using both crowns.
