What are the types of prosthetic bridges?
Dentists at the Eskulap clinic in Greenford London perform different types of prosthetic bridges:
– The porcelain bridge is one of the most commonly used bridge types. The porcelain bridge can be made of porcelain, steel, gold or zirconium. It is durable and aesthetic in appearance.
– Composite bridge on fiberglass. This is a popular choice for many patients because it does not require grinding of abutment teeth. With this type of bridge we are able to supplement only one tooth most often.
– The adhesive bridge is a permanent element because it is attached to the inner surface of the patient’s teeth. Adhesive bridge can be used only for individual missing teeth. They are often used in young patients because of unrestricted bone growth. The missing tooth supplemented with an adhesive bridge has limited strength. When it happens that the bridge becomes detached, it is easy to fix it. Call today to arrange a consultation 07747474755.
