There are three basic procedures that allow dentists to replace a missing tooth—Dental implants, inserting a removable appliance or installing a dental bridge. According to Dr.Viral.Turakhia, Laser Dental Clinic, Mumbai, dental bridges are a popular choice. A dental bridge consists of two caps, known as crowns, with a false tooth fixed between them. The crowns are fixed to the teeth on either side of the empty socket (where the false tooth now sits).

Bridges can:

  • Restore your smile
  • Restore your ability to properly chew and speak
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

There are three main types of dental bridges:

  • Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge and are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
  • Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland bonded bridges (also called a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland bridge) are made of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal framework. Metal wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth.
