Dental Bridges/Maryland Bridge

dental-bridges-img1-2Dental bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that help maintain facial structure, reduce stress on the jaw and fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth.

A dental bridge can be used to:

  • Restore an attractive smile
  • Reduce the risk of gum disease
  • Restore the ability to bite and chew
  • Improve speech
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

Types Of Dental Bridges:

Dental bridgesTraditional Bridges

Also known as fixed bridges, traditional bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. The procedure involves creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic, or a false tooth, in between. Fixed bridges are the most common type of dental bridges and are either made out of porcelain fused to metal or out of ceramics.

Maryland Bridge

Also known as Maryland-bonded bridges, resin-bonded bridges are primarily used for the front teeth. They are less expensive than fixed bridges and are best for use when the teeth are healthy and do not have any large fillings. During this procedure, a false tooth is fused with resin to metal or resin bands which are then bonded to the adjacent teeth and hidden from view. Resin-bonded bridges require only minimal preparation of the adjacent teeth.
