Dental care is not a luxury

Yes, It is necessity!


Dental bridges are a common dental treatment used to

replace one or more missing teeth. They consist of an

artificial tooth (or teeth) that is attached to neighboring

natural teeth or dental implants. There are four main types

of dental bridges, each with its own unique features and

benefits. Understanding the different types of dental

bridges can help you make an informed decision about

which one may be right for your specific dental needs.

And an experienced dentist in Surat can help you with the

replacement of your teeth without any worry.


This is the most common type of

dental bridge used to replace one or

more missing teeth. It consists of a

false tooth (or teeth) that is held in

place by dental crowns that are

cemented onto the natural teeth

adjacent to the gap. Traditional dental

bridges are durable, reliable, and can

restore the patient's ability to chew

and speak normally.

Also known as a resin-bonded bridge

or a Maryland bridge, this type of

bridge uses a metal or porcelain

framework bonded to the back of the

adjacent teeth with a resin adhesive.

The false tooth is then attached to the

framework, and this bridge is a

conservative option for replacing front

teeth. Maryland bridges are less

invasive than traditional bridges and

don't require the adjacent teeth to be

reshaped.


This type of bridge is used when

only one adjacent tooth is available

to support the false tooth. It is

similar to a traditional dental bridge,

but the false tooth is anchored to

only one adjacent tooth instead of

two. Cantilever bridges are often

used to replace missing front teeth.

Implant-supported bridges are the most

stable and long-lasting type of dental bridge.

They use dental implants, which are artificial

tooth roots, to anchor the bridge in place.

The implants are surgically placed into the

jawbone, and the bridge is attached to the

implants. Implant-supported bridges are the

most expensive type of dental bridge but

offer the most natural look and feel.
