A dental bridge replaces missing teeth by anchoring to one or two of the neighbouring teeth. The false tooth is known as the pontic and the anchoring teeth are known as abutments. Dental bridges are fixed and are an alternative to fixed dental implants or removable dentures.
Adhesive dental bridges and Maryland dental bridges involve no tooth preparation or very little preparation of the neighbouring tooth and this has made them the most popular bridge design these days. In adhesive bridges, the false tooth is bonded using a framework wing to the inside wall of one neighbouring tooth.
This involves preparing the two neighbouring teeth (abutments). The false tooth is then fused to the abutment crowns.
The photos below show the case of a patient who presented to us to have her genetically missing teeth replaced with adhesive bridges. We provided her with two missing lateral incisors with two no tooth drilling adhesive bridges.
We use the iTero handheld wand to take a digital, 3D image of your teeth, preventing the need for traditional impressions which can cause some patients to gag. The digital image is then sent straight to the laboratory and work can start on the bridge construction immediately.
