About Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are the most effective, stable, and permanent solution to replace missing teeth. In contrast to removable partial dentures that attach to the remaining teeth, A dental bridge is based on the strength of crowns that are connected to teeth that are adjacent to the edentulous region (space that is not occupied by teeth) or precisely implanted dental implants that are strategically placed. In addition to restoring the appearance, feel, and functionality of natural teeth and prevent the teeth from moving to ensure the proper dental alignment of the patient's bite.

Types of Dental Bridges

Traditional Dental Bridge

It is the most commonly used kind of bridge for dental use. The teeth in place are crowns with one or two pontics then fixed by crown-crowned abutments. The crowns are cemented to the teeth next to those missing to provide a support structure, also known as a "bridge" for the missing teeth.

Cantilever Bridge

This kind of bridge is similar to the traditional one, except that it is supported on just one side rather than both sides. The restoration could function as a "lever" and may create an additional strain on the tooth that supports it, making it more likely to break or break.

Implant-Supported Bridge

Instead of using teeth to support a bridge, an implant can be substituted for both sides of a bridge made of dental material. It's an option that is popular and can result in a safe and secure restoration. That is particularly beneficial when there are several nearby missing teeth.

Maryland Bridge

The type of bridge described above has a steel structure bonded to the tooth's back. Although it isn't as sturdy as a traditional bridge, it can keep the tooth structure intact of adjacent teeth by eliminating the need for crowns to support the abutments. It might not remain in place when intense pressures are applied to it (such as chewing and biting) and can cause strain on the teeth supporting it.

Why would you require an implant for your teeth?

Your teeth are connected. The adjacent teeth could shift into the gap if one missing tooth occurs. The teeth on the opposite jaw can move up and down towards the space. It could cause:

  • Bite issues.
  • Chewing difficulties.
  • The extra pressure on your jaw and teeth.
  • Self-consciousness is related to the way you appear or how you smile.
