- What is a dental bridge?
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth or dental implants. It will literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
- What types of dental bridges are there?
There are four main types of dental bridges, traditional (or conventional), cantilever, Maryland & implant-supported.
- What is a traditional bridge?
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. If you have a natural tooth on each side of the gap caused by the missing tooth or teeth, then a cantilever or Maryland bridge may be used.
- What is an Implant-supported dental bridge?
Implant-supported bridges use dental implants instead of crowns or frameworks. Typically, one implant is surgically placed for every missing tooth, and these implants hold the bridge in position.
