Dental Bridge

What is a dental bridge?

If you have missing teeth, your dentist can close — or bridge — the gaps in your smile with dental bridges. A dental bridge is a false tooth (called a pontic) that is held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. Although pontics can be made from a variety of materials such as gold, typically they’re made from porcelain to aesthetically blend in with your natural teeth.

Dental bridge types

There are four main types of dental bridges:

  • traditional
  • cantilever
  • Maryland
  • implant-supported


Traditional dental bridge

A traditional dental bridge consists of a false tooth or teeth being held in place by dental crowns that have been cemented onto each of the abutment teeth. A traditional bridge is the most popular type of dental bridge and can be used when you have natural teeth on both sides of the gap created by your missing tooth.


Cantilever dental bridge

Although similar to a traditional bridge, the pontic in a cantilever dental bridge is held in place by a dental crown that is cemented to only one abutment tooth. For a cantilever bridge, you only need one natural tooth next to the missing tooth gap.


Maryland dental bridge

Similar to a traditional bridge, Maryland dental bridges employ two natural abutment teeth, one on each side of the gap. However, while a traditional bridge uses dental crowns on the abutment teeth, a Maryland bridge uses a framework of either metal or porcelain that is bonded onto the backs of the abutment teeth.

Like a traditional bridge, a Maryland bridge can only be used when you have a natural tooth on each side of the gap caused by the missing tooth or teeth.


Implant-supported dental bridge

As the name implies, implant-supported bridges use dental implants as opposed to crowns or frameworks. Typically, one implant is surgically placed for every missing tooth, and these implants hold the bridge in position. If one implant for each missing tooth isn’t possible, the bridge may have a pontic suspended between two implant-supported crowns.

Considered the strongest and most stable system, an implant-supported bridge commonly requires two surgeries:

  • one to embed the implants in the jawbone
  • a second surgery to place the bridge

It can take a number of months for the procedure to be completely finished.

What does a dental bridge cost?

There are many variables that can affect the price including:

  • number of teeth needed to fill the gap
  • materials used, such as composite resin, zirconia, or metal alloy covered in resin
  • complexity/difficulty of the placement
  • additional treatments for other dental issues, such as gum disease


The costs also depend on the type of bridge that you select:

  • Traditional or cantilever bridges typically cost €100 for one pontic and a crown for each abutment tooth.
  • Maryland bridges typically cost €100€150 for one pontic with the framework, or wings, attached to the abutment teeth.
  • An implant-supported bridge could cost €150€500 for a bridge with two dental implants spanning three or four teeth.


Dental bridge vs. dental implant

Many dental insurance plans cover bridges, and many now cover implants as well. A dental bridge may need to be replaced every 5 to 15 years, depending on proper care, while implants are considered a permanent solution. There are factors that can reduce the life of all types of bridges, including implants, such as dental hygiene.

Why do I need a dental bridge?

When you have a missing tooth or missing teeth, it can affect you in a number of ways. A dental bridge can address those changes, including:

  • restoring your smile
  • restoring the ability to properly chew
  • restoring your speech and pronunciation
  • maintaining the shape of your face
  • re-adjusting your bite to properly distribute the force when you chew
  • preventing your remaining teeth from moving out of the correct position


If you’re missing a tooth or a number of teeth, you have different replacement options to discuss with a dentist. There are many benefits to using dental bridges, and there are many factors — including costs — that you should consider before making a decision.

How much are dental implants in Republic of Moldova?

What is a dental implant?

Did your dentist tell you that you need a dental implant, but you’re not sure what a dental implant really is, or what a dental implant includes? Missing one or more of your teeth creates an imbalance in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can change your eating habits, which leads many to become undernourished by eating the wrong foods just because they are easy to eat. If a tooth remains missing for too long, it can lead to bone loss in your jaw, which will further complicate the need to get dental implants.

When you lose a tooth, your mandible begins to contract and becomes fragile from lack of function. When this happens, a bone graft is often necessary before an implant can be placed.

Losing a tooth affects your smile. Losing several teeth can affect the proportions of your face causing you to appear older and unhealthy.

Dental implants are effectively replacement teeth with dental screws introduced into the bone to provide extended reinforcement and support for crowns and dentures. Dental implants are the cutting-edge of tooth replacement. Most dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth and are often much stronger. Today’s implants osseointegrate with your bone to give support for crowns and dentures. In other words, a dental implant will actually allow bone to grow through it, so that the implant becomes as strong as a regular tooth…perhaps stronger.

Dental Implant Pricing:

In the USA and Canada, a dental implant can cost anywhere from $4000-$6000. This includes the implant post or screw, abutment and crown…depending on the materials. The cost for a complete dental implant with a high quality post, abutment and crown of porcelain, eMax or zirconia in Republic of Moldova’s  Sanelen DENT Dental Clinic will cost €200 to €400.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

  • Maintain and Preserve Your Jaw Bone
  • Look Younger…and Feel Self Confident
  • You Only Get One Smile…Keep It Looking Good!

Dental Implants are light, strong, compatible with living tissue and are made from titanium, the safest material in dental and oral implants.

Choose from individual dental implants, implant-supported fixed bridges, or implant-supported dentures! For more precise pricing, fill out the find a dentist form on this site. And we will contact you to discuss your need and more exact pricing for your procedures.

What are the parts of a dental implant?


The implant or fixture is the titanium screw like cylinder surgically inserted into bone that acts as an anchor for a crown to replace the missing tooth. Implant screws work like natural tooth roots. An implant takes between three to six months to integrate to bone. The average price of a dental implant in Republic of Moldova varies from €200 to €400.


The abutment is the part that passes through the gum into the mouth and is attached onto the dental implant fixture or screw. There are temporary abutments, prefabricated abutments (straight, angled), custom abutments (zirconia, titanium, various other metals; milled, and cast types); and abutments to use for overdenture attachments.

The cost of the abutment ranges from €50 to €150 in Republic of Moldova Sanelen DENT Dental Clinic.


The restoration, prosthesis or superstructure is the part that sits above the gum on one or more abutments to restore the space caused by missing teeth. This part can be cemented or screwed onto the abutment. The prosthesis may be a single tooth, multiple teeth or a denture held in place by implants:

Dental implants with a crown

Dental implants are placed into the bone in a pain-free procedure. The bone and gums will be given time to heal before a crown are attached. In most cases, a temporary crown will be placed during the same appointment the implant is placed. An implant porcelain crown is often fused to precious metals, non-precious metals or zirconia. Prices range from €50 to €200 depending on the materials used.

Multiple Teeth or Full Mouth Restorations

If all upper or lower teeth are missing, it is possible to place multiple dental implants to support a denture. Due to bone shrinking, traditional dentures become loose and unbalanced over time. Dental implant supported dentures maintain bone so they stabilize in your mouth. Depending on the materials used to manufacture your dentures (acrylic, ceramage, and porcelain) and the amount of implants placed (4 to 6), the prices will vary. In the USA, a full mouth restoration can cost €35,000-€60,000. In Moldova, high quality full mouth restorations can cost from €3,000 to €5,000.

What is the difference between dental appliances that stick to the outer face and those that stick to the inside of the teeth?

When it comes to orthodontic treatments, the dental appliance is the “weapon” of any orthodontist. It is the dental device that helps align the harmonious and functional teeth and obtain a healthy and healthy bite. There are extremely many dental devices on the market, some less visible, others on the contrary. However, what is the difference between dental appliances that stick to the outer face and those that stick to the inside of the teeth?

The dental device is recommended for all age groups and is the choice of the patient what kind of device he or she wants to wear. “Teeth can be moved and aligned at any age,” explains the orthodontists.

In the case of adults, the fixed device, the one that sticks to the teeth, has two large groups, some visible and some invisible. The visible ones stick to the outer face of the teeth and can be metallic or physiognomic, ceramic or sapphire.

The invisible ones are stuck on the inside of the teeth, they can even be gold. Like the Incognito device, which personalizes for each patient. Or, like the Invisalign, which is a succession of transparent guitars every two weeks. The number of needles required for a treatment depends on the severity of the abnormality.

Does orthodontic treatment hurt?

Installing your dental appliance is a painless procedure. It takes about an hour for each arcade. However, the dental patient may experience local discomfort for several days due to the springs.

There is pain immediately after the appliance is collapsed or after activation sessions, it may vary from person to person. It can be a little embarrassment or more intense pain.

Your Dental Tour

High Quality at Affordable Prices

1. What is dental tourism?

The world economy crisis is affecting all of us. With our economy unstable, you never know what tomorrow might bring. We’re all desperately trying to save more money, yet our medical needs remain the same. We have to take care of our health, and especially of our teeth. High cost means many of us avoid all but the most urgent of dental treatment. But now, there’s a very simple solution – dental tourism.

Dental tourism, as a part of more general medical tourism, has existed for many years, of course. But over recent years, it has significantly grown in popularity. And the reason is obvious. When times are tough, dental tourism saves you money while allowing you to travel abroad for a great holiday at the same time.

The formula is very simple. Dental costs in the US and Western Europe are generally higher than you would pay for the same treatment abroad – and that includes the cost of travel and accommodation, food and even spending money. If you live in the US or Western Europe, it is simple to arrange dental treatment in Eastern Europe – in the Republic of Moldova. On average, costs in the Republic of Moldova are 70% less than in the Western Europe and US.

Here are some examples. Dentists can charge €300 to €400 for a Dental Filling in Europe. This costs only €40 to €50 in the Republic of Moldova. A Root Canal is €800 in the West, but only €100 to €200 in the Republic of Moldova. Dentures can cost €1000 overseas, but only €200 in the Republic of Moldova. As you can see, the difference is considerable, especially when you have many teeth requiring treatment.

Although it has a small area, the Republic of Moldova as a tourist destination has a great potential represented first of all by the geomorphologic aspect of its territory – an unusual diversity of landscape reservations or scenery and unique geological monuments of European and world value. Over the last decade the priority forms of tourism in the Republic of Moldova have been: rural, wine, cultural tourism, health and beauty tourism.


Moldova is a small country in Eastern Europe. Its rich soil and temperate continental climate with warm summers and mild winters have made the country one of the most productive agricultural regions since ancient times, and a major supplier of agricultural products in southeastern Europe. Moldova’s fertile soil produces fruits, vegetables and grain products and one of the most important industries of the country is wine – making, for which Moldova is known far beyond its borders. For many years, wine-making in Moldova was the basic occupation of the population.

Wineries: Cricova Winery, Milestii Mici Winery, Purcari Winery, Cojusna Winery.


The Republic of Moldova has a rich cultural heritage which may be of great interest to tourists. 140 cultural heritage sites may be included in the tourist circuit. The earliest visible remains of the built heritage are Geto-Dacian sites and Roman fortifications. The remains of medieval fortresses, archaeological complexes such as Orheiul Vechi, cave monasteries, nobles’ mansions and peasant houses offer a diversity of visitor attractions. Chisinau, the capital city, features a good number of cultural heritage monuments, fine examples of domestic architecture from the 19th and 20th centuries, which might be considered as tourist attractions as well.

The Republic of Moldova has 87 museums with rich collections of art. Additionally, museums are mostly housed in buildings of a special architectural importance. All of these have their specialist audiences, but at least 20 are of interest to the general public.

Part of the national tourist product is the variety of cultures represented in different parts of the country. The Republic of Moldova is an amalgam of many nationalities and cultures with many traditions, languages, folklore, cooking, etc. There are over 880 folk music groups in the Republic of Moldova, most of them reflecting the distinct traditions of their districts and ethnic origins. It is worth mentioning the national craftsmanship both because of cultural value and also because it supplies souvenirs for tourists.

Learn more about dental implants

Dental implants radically improve the patient’s quality of life, as it restores aesthetics and dental functions to natural teeth. Whether you need to replace a tooth, teeth, or teeth, whether you have the bone foundation needed for the implants or your bone is atrophied and need to add and regenerate the experience of the Sanelen DENT Dental Clinic, guarantees a well-done treatment with results for decades.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are currently the best and most effective solution for lost teeth replacement.

Whether we lose a tooth, many teeth or even all teeth, implants and modern implantology techniques can do wonders. Thus, patients no longer have to sacrifice natural teeth to anchor dental bridgework, they no longer use mobile prostheses that create permanent discomfort, but they can benefit from fixed teeth, anchored on implants, that look and feel at just like natural teeth.

The dental implant is a pure titanium piece, screw-shaped. It is meant to create an artificial root in the maxillary bone, where the tooth or natural teeth are missing.

Reconstruction is made up of two segments – an intraosy (implant) and a superusive one called prosthetic tuft.

A crown, a bridge or a denture is anchored above the prosthetic bust.

Treatment is conservative compared to a traditional bridge work because dental implants eliminate the need to kill adjacent teeth. If we are making a dental bridge, it needs to have anchorage of at least 2 teeth, the teeth that will unfortunately be sacrificed (the nerves are extracted, the channels are squeezed and the teeth that formerly were healthy).

Restoring teeth to implants brings extraordinary aesthetic and functional benefits, and the patient does not perceive the ‘artificial’ feeling. Shortly after insertion, the patient forgets that he lost a tooth in that place.

Personal experience is defining when choosing your doctor or clinic where you want to be treated. That’s why the words can be superfluous and it’s best to convince yourself, programming yourself right now on our phones or the form on the site. And do not forget for a moment that an educated patient is an informed patient!
