Types Of Dental Bridges

Posted on 2/6/2023 by Fern Creek Dentistry
Types Of Dental BridgesMissing teeth can be a significant problem for many people, causing issues with biting and chewing and impacting self-confidence. Dental bridges provide an effective solution for those looking to replace missing teeth.

A dental bridge is a prosthetic device anchored in place using adjacent teeth, known as abutment teeth. There are several different dental bridges, each with unique benefits. Below is more about the types of dental bridges:

Traditional Bridge

This type of bridge is the most common and has a material made from porcelain fused with metal—the dentist anchors using two abutment teeth, one on either side of the missing tooth. Traditional bridges are durable and long-lasting, making them an excellent choice for those seeking a permanent solution.

Cantilever Bridge

Another option is the cantilever bridge. This type of bridge is similar to the traditional bridge but tied in place using only one abutment tooth. It makes it an excellent option for those with only one abutment tooth.

Maryland Bridge

This type of bridge has material from a metal framework, and the dentist ties it in place using a metal wing bonded to the back of the abutment teeth. This bridge is often a temporary solution but can also be a permanent option for some patients.

Implant-supported Bridge

The dentist ties the dental implants to this bridge for support and places them directly into the jawbone. It provides a permanent solution that is exceptionally stable and secure. However, implant-supported bridges may require multiple surgical procedures and a longer healing time than other bridges.

No matter which type of dental bridge you choose, you can rest assured that it will provide a natural-looking and functional replacement for your missing teeth. Visit our dentist today to ensure you know all the types of dental bridges.
