The Most Common Dental Bridges and How They Work

Posted on 4/12/2021 by Dr. Hallas
A dental bridge is a prosthetic device that is used to restore one or more than one lost tooth. This device is non-removable and is supported by the teeth adjacent to the gaps. It holds one or more pontics that serve as replacement teeth and restore a person's eating abilities. There are three main types of dental bridges. Traditional Dental Bridges Traditional dental bridges are the most common types of dental bridges. These bridges hold one or more false teeth that are held in place by a dental crown on either side of the gap. Among dental bridges, traditional dental bridges are the strongest. A major benefit of traditional dental bridges is that they can tolerate large amounts of pressure and hence are good options for molars and premolars. Their major drawback is that they require shaving down the enamel of otherwise healthy teeth to support them. Cantilever Dental Bridges A cantilever dental bridge is supported on one side by a single crown. This type of bridge may be recommended if you have just one healthy tooth adjacent to the gap. However, because of this design, cantilever dental bridges are not very strong and cannot withstand much pressure. Hence, they are only suitable for teeth that require low pressure like your incisor and canines. Maryland Dental Bridges The major benefit of Maryland bridges is that they do not require dental crowns. Instead, they consist of a wing-like framework that bonds to the enamel of your healthy teeth. This means that Maryland bridges are the best option if you want to preserve the health of your remaining teeth. However, the success rate of these bridges is not very high since the resin that bonds them to the tooth can chip off and make the bridge unstable. If you have one or more missing teeth, dental bridges are a good conservative option to replace them. At Bay Lakes Center for Complex Dentistry, Dr. Lasnoski and Dr. Hallas can check your teeth and determine whether you are a suitable candidate for dental bridges. Call us today at (906) 212-4725....
