Dental Bridges HavantFor bridges and dentures in Havant contact Prince George Dental Practice. Bridges replace missing teeth without the need for a denture. They are durable, look like your real teeth and restore your bite as well as your smile. It is only possible to fit a bridge if you have good bone support and enough strong teeth. There are a number of different types of bridges. They all involve the teeth either side of the gap holding a false tooth in place.
The most common type of bridge are:
- Fixed Bridges – Crowns are place on the abutment teeth (teeth either side of the space). A false tooth is attached to the crowns, to close the gap.
- Cantilever bridges – Similar to a fixed bridge these are used when there are teeth on only one side of the gap.
- Maryland bridges – This has wings that are bonded to the back of the supporting teeth. As crowns are not needed there is very little drilling and the process does not involve filing down the surrounding teeth. However they are not as durable as a fixed bridge. but the process does not involve filing down the surrounding teeth necessary when fitting a fixed bridge.
