Dental Bridges


A dental bridge is usually used when a tooth is missing in the mouth. Bridges are typically made of a precious metal base, but white ceramic porcelain is bonded to the ground if the bridge shows.

  • It would be best if you replace missing teeth for several reasons. Your appearance is one reason. Another is that the gap left by a missing tooth can mean more significant strain is put on the teeth on either side.
  • A gap can also mean your ‘bite’ is affected because the teeth next to the space can lean into the hole and alter how the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can lead to food getting packed into the gap, which causes both decay and gum disease.

Conventional Bridges

Conventional bridges are common and essential transportation links that span rivers, valleys, and other obstacles. They consist of various types, including beam, arch, truss, and suspension bridges, built with concrete, steel, wood, or masonry materials. While versatile and relatively cost-effective, they have limited span length and load capacity compared to advanced designs. Regular maintenance is crucial to ensure their safety and longevity. Despite newer bridge types, conventional bridges remain vital in connecting communities and fostering economic growth globally.

Marryland Bridges

A Maryland dental bridge is a permanent dental bridge that replaces a missing tooth.

The concept is similar to a traditional bridge. It involves a floating false tooth that replaces the missing one. Your dentist will attach the prosthetic tooth to the neighboring teeth on either side of the gap, creating a seamless smile.

However, a Maryland bridge bonds to the surrounding teeth differently than a regular bridge. Instead of fully covering the teeth on either side with a dental crown, a Maryland bridge uses a thin metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth.
