Dental bridges can be one of the various procedures involved in a full-mouth restoration.
Bridges are recommended for patients who have missing teeth, however there are different types of bridges which y accommodate to the specific needs of each patient.
The traditional bridge is the perfect solution for those who have teeth on either side of the gap left by missing teeth since two crowns are placed on these teeth. These are the most common types of bridgework and can be made of ceramic or porcelain fused to metal.
When there are no surrounding teeth that can provide proper support for crowns, dental implants can be used to fix the bridge in place.
Next we have the Cantilever Bridge, which is the perfect option for those who have teeth on one side of the gap in the mouth. The placement of teeth are fused to two crowns that are attached to the patient´s natural teeth on the side only.
The Maryland Bonded Bridge is an affordable choice, the dental bridge is composed of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal framework which we call “wings”. These “wings” are bonded to the back of the adjacent teeth.
This type of bonded dental bridge is usually a more affordable choice when compared to other types of bridges, it´s application is also very simple.
Whether you have one or various missing teeth, a dental bridge can greatly aid in the mastication process, thus adding quality to your life.
