Dental bridges have been used for centuries to replace missing teeth. Today, dental bridges are still considered one of the most durable, conservative, and cost-effective options for bridging the gap between a missing tooth and surrounding teeth. Comprised of two anchoring teeth and a replacement tooth, dental bridges help prevent surrounding teeth from drifting out of position, improve chewing and speaking, and help maintain natural face shape.
The three types of dental bridges are traditional dental bridges, cantilever dental bridges and Maryland bridges. Traditional bridges have either dental crowns or dental implants on either side of the missing tooth, plus a replacement tooth, which is connected to the neighboring crowns. Cantilever dental bridges are used in cases where there are surrounding teeth only on one side of the missing tooth. Maryland bridges consist of a replacement tooth supported by “wings” that are cemented to the enamel of surrounding teeth.
