Resin Bonded Bridge (Maryland Bridge)
A high speed drill is used to cut into the back of the neighboring teeth. A prostheses is then added to the back of your natural teeth. With the absence of the natural tooth root the bone above the crown begins to shrink. Every day biting forces will also begin to apply apposing pressures that will loosen the bond overtime. Resin bonded bridges are not long term solutions to missing teeth because they don’t hold up to the forces of chewing. Whereas, dental implants are able to withstand the forces of chewing and are the longest lasting tooth replacement options available.
