Here’s a 3 minutes and 13 seconds The Three Most Common Types of Dental Bridges video. See full transcript below.
One way to replace missing teeth is through dental bridges. It is also referred to as fixed bridges since, like dental implants, it stay permanently in your mouth. A dental bridge exactly bridges the gap of one or two missing teeth and is composed of two or more crowns on either side of the missing teeth. The abutment teeth are the anchoring teeth and in the between them is the false tooth/teeth. Dental bridges help restore your smile, uphold a proper face shape and put your jaws together when biting.
There are different known types of dental bridges, and the most common of these are the traditional bridge, cantilever, and Maryland bonded bridge. Compared to dentures, bridges are cemented onto the biological teeth or implants on any side of a gap. There are some types of bridges that are more expensive than others. Your dentist can help you decide which dental bridge is appropriate for you according to the placement, look, function and price of the tooth replacement.
