What is a Dental Bridge?

If you have missing teeth, your dentist can close — or bridge — the gaps in your smile with dental bridges. A dental bridge treatment in pune is a false tooth (called a pontic) that is held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of the gap. Although pontics can be made from a variety of materials such as gold, typically they’re made from porcelain to aesthetically blend in with your natural teeth.

This is a dental restoration used to span or ‘bridge’ an edentulous area (space where teeth are missing). A bridge is made of two or more crowns for the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth. These anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth with a false tooth in the middle.

Dental Bridge Types

Traditional dental bridge: A traditional dental bridge treatment in pune consists of a false tooth or teeth being held in place by dental crowns that have been cemented onto each of the abutment teeth. A traditional bridge is the most popular type of dental bridge and can be used when you have natural teeth on both sides of the gap created by your missing tooth.

Cantilever dental bridge- 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. (NOT DONE FOR ALL CASES)

Maryland dental bridge: 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.

Implant-supported dental bridge: 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.
