What is a bridge?
Dental bridges are a permanent and fixed way of replacing missing teeth. The surrounding teeth provide a platform for the bridge to be attached to, making them very secure.
Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or when one tooth is adequate to hold a bridge in place.
As with other types of orthodontic treatment, the cost of Invisalign is dependent on the specifics of your individual needs. These factors can include the complexity of your case and how long your treatment will take, but the cost is generally comparable to traditional fixed braces.
Conventional fixed bridge
Fixed bridges involve crowning teeth on either side of the missing tooth, with a false tooth in between. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. These are the most common types of bridges.
Maryland bridges are bonded to the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth/teeth. The false tooth/ teeth are attached to wings which are bonded to your existing teeth.
