Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. Bridges are important because missing teeth can cause a change in your bite, shifting of your teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), speech impediments, and an increased risk for periodontal disease or tooth decay.
- Traditional Fixed Bridge – The most common type of dental bridge is the fixed dental bridge that is permanently placed between two healthy teeth. The bridge i then held in place by porcelain dental crowns. Fixed dental bridges absorb light, creating a natural-looking smile.
- Resin Bonded Bridge – This type of bridge is done by having a false tooth fused to metal bands and bonded to abutment teeth with resin. This minimizes the amount of preparation needed for the adjacent teeth. This type of restoration will actually reflect light, creating an unnatural look unlike the traditional fixed bridge.
- Cantilever Bridge – The cantilever bridge is used in areas of your mouth that are under less stress, anchoring a false tooth on only one side over one or more adjacent teeth. The layout of a cantilever bridge is different then a traditional fixed bridge but it often uses the same number of dental crowns. The abutment crowns are placed next to each other, with the pontic placed on the end. In some cases only one dental crown is used but that depends on how much support the cantilever bridge will need.
