Dental bridgework at park chambers

A simple technique to restore gaps and missing teeth.

A bridge is a way of replacing a missing tooth with ‘fixed teeth’ that are not removed from the mouth. There are various types of design, the most commonly used are fixed bridges and adhesive bridges (also known as Maryland bridges).

Fixed bridgework involves placing crowns on the teeth either side of a space, and then joining the crowns together with a solid crown in the space. The bridge is cemented in place with dental cement.

Adhesive bridgework involves placing ‘wings’ of support around adjacent teeth, and attaching a solid crown in the space. There is minimal drilling involved with this procedure, as this approach aims to conserve remaining teeth.
