Press Release   •   Feb 02, 2017 20:31 AEDT

Dental BridgeAs the name suggests, dental bridges are designed to bridge gaps created by at least one missing tooth. Dental bridges require candidates with strong hygiene routines because fitting them necessitates the elimination of some protective tooth enamel. Dental bridges, which are supported by natural teeth or implants, are of various types and benefits.

Available Types of Dental Bridges:

Traditional Bridges are bridges consisting of “fake teeth” held in place by dental crowns or abutments that are cemented onto the teeth contiguous to your absent tooth. Traditional bridges are the most popular kind and can be used when the gap is created between two natural teeth. They are made of either porcelain combined to metal or ceramics.

Cantilever Bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth. Although they are very similar to traditional bridges, the difference is that the pontic is supported by an abutment on only one side, rather than both sides.

Maryland Bridges or resin-bonded bridges are recommended for replacing lost teeth at the front of the mouth. It is desired to be used on one tooth for better results. Maryland bridges are critical, since the strength of the bridge is controlled by the force of the resin holding it, so a strong biting pressure might not keep it in place. Maryland bridges are made of porcelain, porcelain fused to metal or plastic teeth and gums maintained by a metal or porcelain framework.

Implant-Supported Bridges can be used when you are missing various teeth. Implant-supported Bridges are sustained by dental implants. Usually, each implant is placed for every absent tooth and this series of implants hold the bridge in place.
