Different types of dental bridges

All-Ceramic (Metal-Free) Fixed Bridges

The advantages of this are better appearance and suitable for patients who either don’t want or can’t have metal in their mouth

Bonded Ceramic to Metal Fixed Bridges

These are generally stronger and more suitable for patients requiring large span bridgework. The downside is that the appearance generally is not as good as all-ceramic dental bridges.

Maryland Bridges

Similar to a traditional bridge, Maryland dental bridges employ two natural abutment teeth, one on each side of the gap. However, while a traditional bridge uses dental crowns on the abutment teeth, a Maryland bridge uses a framework of either metal or porcelain that is bonded onto the backs of the abutment teeth.

Like a traditional bridge, a Maryland bridge can only be used when you have a natural tooth on each side of the gap caused by the missing tooth or teeth.

Cantilever Bridges

Although similar to a traditional bridge, the pontic in a cantilever dental bridge is held in place by a dental crown that is cemented to only one abutment tooth.

For a cantilever bridge, you only need one natural tooth next to the missing tooth gap.

Implant retained bridges

As the name implies, implant-supported bridges use dental implants as opposed to crowns or frameworks. Typically, one implant is surgically placed for every missing tooth, and these implants hold the bridge in position. If one implant for each missing tooth isn’t possible, the bridge may have a pontic suspended between two implant-supported crowns.

Considered the strongest and most stable system, an implant-supported bridge commonly requires two surgeries:

  • one to embed the implants in the jawbone
  • a second surgery to place the bridge

It can take a number of months for the procedure to be completely finished.

Fibre Bonded Bridges (suitable as temporary)

Acrylic Bonded Bridges (suitable as temporary)

We can make these at the surgery and they are generally used where large bridgework is being provided. In many respects, they are as good as the permanent although their longevity is limited and they tend to stain.

However, they are easy to adjust and the appearance is really good

No Drilling Adhesive Bridges

These are usually either a Maryland Bridge or a Fibre Bonded Bridge

Emergency Dental Bridges

We can almost always (98%) get things sorted the same day when patients come with a problem with their bridge.

This is because most of the problems are caused by the bridge coming out.

In the case where treatments involve Root Canal Treatment or replacement of the bridge then it will usually be longer.

But we can usually find ways to relieve pain and maintain appearance on the first visit.

Our Milton Keynes Emergency Dental Service is open 7 days a week, Every bank holiday indeed every day!

FAQ

Your appearance is one reason. Another is that the gap left by a missing tooth can mean greater strain is put on the teeth at either side. A gap can also mean your ‘bite’ is affected, because the teeth next to the space can lean into the gap and alter the way the upper and lower teeth bite together. This can then lead to food getting packed into the gap, which causes both decay and gum disease.

This depends on the number of teeth missing and on where they are in the mouth. The condition of the other teeth also affects the decision. There are two main ways to replace missing teeth. The first is with a removable false tooth or teeth – a partial denture. The second is with a fixed bridge. A bridge is usually used where there are fewer teeth to replace, or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth.

The main alternative is a fixed bridge. This is made by putting crowns on the teeth at either side of the space, and then joining these two crowns together by placing a false tooth in the space. This is all made in the laboratory and then the pieces are cemented into place with special adhesives. The bridge can’t be removed.

Yes, if you have enough strong teeth with good bone support. Your dentist will help you decide which is the best way of replacing them within your budget.

Bridges are usually made of precious metal. If the bridge will show, porcelain is then bonded to the base. Sometimes, there are other non-precious metals used in the base for strength.

Although a bridge may seem expensive it will last many years. It will also improve your appearance and bite. A bridge uses the considerable skill of the dentist and technician, and in this way, it’s similar to ordering a piece of hand-made jewellery. The materials are also expensive so it’s fair to say a bridge will not be the cheapest treatment you have ever had.

You need to clean your bridge every day, to prevent problems such as bad breath and gum disease. You also have to clean under the false tooth every day. Your dentist or hygienist will show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss, as a normal toothbrush cannot reach.

There are other methods, such as using a combination of crowns and partial dentures that can keep the retaining clips out of sight. These are quite specialised dentures, so you should ask your dentist about them.
