Fixed Dental Bridge

A Permanent Solution for Replacing Missing Teeth

A fixed dental bridge, often referred to simply as a dental bridge, is a dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth. It is called “fixed” because it is permanently attached to the adjacent natural teeth or dental implants.

Dental Bridges types

Traditional, Cantilever, and Maryland Bridges

Dental bridges are of different types, Traditional Bridge: This is the most common type, where the pontic is supported by dental crowns on adjacent abutment teeth. Cantilever Bridge: In cases where there is only one adjacent tooth to support the pontic, a cantilever bridge is used. Maryland Bridge (Resin-Bonded Bridge): This type uses metal or porcelain wings bonded to the backs of adjacent teeth, eliminating the need for crowns.
