What are the main types of bridges?

Traditional bridges

Traditional bridges are used where there are healthy teeth on each side of the missing tooth.

Implant bridges

Implant bridges are used when the neighboring teeth can not support the structure of the new bridge. In this case, the implants are inserted in the jawbone and are used to support it.

Resin-Retained bridges

These types of bridges are used when the teeth are missing at the front and cosmetic appearance of the bridge is important. In their turn they can be metal framed, fiber reinforced, or ceramic.

Cantilever bridges

Cantilever bridges are necessary when there are only one side of the bridge can be supported by healthy teeth.

The overall bridge design principle is easy to understand:

  • The bridge design should be kept as simple as possible
  • It should cover as much of the supporting (or abutment) tooth or teeth as possible
  • Be strong
  • Allow the control of the occlusal contacts
