Dental bridges

Fixed solutions to replace a missing tooth by a bridging structure

What are dental bridges?

Dental bridges can be both a fixed and removable option to replace missing teeth. They comprise of a bridge unit (what holds your new teeth together), pontics (the in-between artificial teeth), and dental crowns (anchoring the bridge).

There are typically 4 types of dental bridges:

Traditional bridges: bridges that are supported by two crowns on your natural teeth.

Cantilever bridges: similar to traditional bridges, but instead they are only secured in place by one side.

Maryland bridges: bridges that are bonded to the backs of your adjacent teeth (no tooth preparation). They are classically limited in the forces they can handle.

Implant retained bridge: bridges that are held in place by implant that are secured into the jaw bone. They are seen as the gold standard for tooth replacement.
