Types of Dental Bridges

There are three main types of dental bridges: traditional bridges, cantilever bridges, and Maryland bridges.
Traditional Bridges: Traditional bridges are the most common type of dental bridge. They consist of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) held in place by dental crowns that are placed on the adjacent teeth. (The adjacent teeth have to be structurally sound)
Cantilever Bridges: Cantilever bridges are similar to traditional bridges, but they are used when there is only one adjacent tooth to support the bridge.. This tooth needs to be structurally sound and stable. The pontic is limited to size and function
Maryland Bridges: Maryland bridges are a more conservative option that does not require the adjacent teeth to be capped. Instead, the artificial teeth are attached to a metal or porcelain framework that is bonded to the back of the adjacent teeth.

How Dental Bridges are Placed

The placement of dental bridges typically requires two or more visits to the dentist. The first visit involves preparing the adjacent teeth by removing some of the enamel to make room for the dental crowns. Afterward, an impression of your teeth is taken to create the dental bridge in a dental laboratory. A temporary bridge is placed while you wait for the permanent bridge to be made.
During the second visit, the temporary bridge is removed, and the permanent bridge is carefully placed and adjusted to fit properly. Once the dentist is satisfied with the fit and appearance, the bridge is cemented in place.

From making the initial call with Sarah to treatment I had a fantastic experience.Amazing... atmosphere, perfect for nervous patients like myself! I have worried for years about going to the dentist and “Sophie & Shannon made it all disappear. They were both so patient with me and reassured me throughout the appointment . Taking time to explain everything and what to expect, I never felt pressured or rushed it was exactly what I needed to gain some confidence. I cannot thank all the staff enough and would recommend to anyone who maybe like myself and have worries and concerns.read more

This practice is by far the very best I have been to - ever! ALL the staff are amazing, from the... warmest of welcomes on reception, to the most fantastic and 'state of the art' dental treatment by an experienced, professional and extremely caring dental team. The premises are inviting, relaxing, and absolutely spotless. I've instantly gone from a terrified patient to feeling reassured and happy with my treatment plan - in a very short period of time. I just wish we had found them sooner, and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them (in fact I do so at every opportunity!) Never before has a dentist extracted my teeth without sedation, but Dr Johan did so with the very minimum of discomfort. I have now regained my smile, and could not be happier - thank you!read more

We lived in Canada for 20 years and when we returned to the UK eight years ago we struggled to find... a hygienist as thorough as our Canadian hygienist. Then we found Ramsbottom Dental Clinic and Kelly the hygienist. She is thorough but gentle and a lovely friendly person. The new premises are lovely with a large airy and bright waiting area. The receptionists are great and always make you feel welcome. I thoroughly recommend this dental practice.Lesley Welbourneread more

I have now used three of the dentists there and am a regular on the dental plan; a regular check up amd hygienist clean for not much more than a tenner a month.Today I had a crown undertaken and cannot fault the work. I didn't feel a thing; fast, efficient and pain-free.All of the staff are friendly, helpful and reassuring; appointments at times convenient to me are always available and I would recommend everyone to give them a try.read more

Went to see Dr Sophie yesterday with my 12 year old daughter who had chipped her front tooth. ... Sophie & her assistant Jo were absolutely lovely & did the most amazing job restoring her tooth to its former beauty with composite bonding. Thank you soooooo much from both me & Olivia. I am so impressed with this dental practice, from my initial call & correspondence with Sarah, up to the appointment itself & would highly recommend.read more
