A traditional bridge uses the teeth either side of the gap to have crowns fitted to secure the false tooth. A cantilever bridge is used when there is only one natural tooth to secure the false teeth onto.
Bridges are a good choice if you prefer a fixed option and your palate left clear, however they are prone to damage due to reduced bone support underneath the bridge. The Maryland bridge may also debond if too much pressure is applied when eating. If you would like to discuss having a bridge to replace missing teeth at our Stockton dental practice, please get in touch.
Bridges are available on NHS Band 3 treatment plans and also available privately.
