Bridging the Gap
Gaps in teeth are not just smile killers, they promote periodontal disease, tooth decay, weaken gum lines, and leads to Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). There are three major bridge strategies used in modern dentistry and we utilize them all.
- Cantilever bridges – This bridge type connect a tooth or set of teeth only on one end. We find that this technique is best only for areas of the mouth that are not heavily utilized for chewing.
- Maryland bridges – This option is best for a single missing tooth. One great advantage of this technique is that it requires very little removal of natural teeth. However, it is the least aesthetically pleasing.
- Traditional bridges – The most common of all bridges. Crowns or implants are inserted on both sides of the bridge.
Crossing the Bridge to Dental Technologies
As advancements in dental technologies and methods continue to increase, we continue to stay abreast to them and adapt. The latest advancements are utilizing mini-implants to anchor dental bridges for improved stability. Our staff is actively looking at the feasibility of this strategy.
