Resin Retained Dental Bridge – Lichfield Dentist Case Study

Case Study – Resin Retained Dental Bridge

This lady wanted to lose her denture and have her front teeth replaced with a fixed alternative. Unfortunately she was not a candidate for implants unless she had a large bone graft, and we did not want to drill her good teeth to retain a conventional bridge.

Instead we decided to glue a resin retained bridge onto the teeth either side of the gap.

The downside – it’ll fall off one day and we’ll glue it back in (don’t worry she’ll wear her denture if it comes out).

The upside – we haven’t taken too many risks with her teeth and she doesn’t have to wear a denture.  As of 2018, 6 years a counting with no problems.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges can be used to replace a missing tooth or teeth with a fixed in place solution that is not removable. When a tooth or teeth need to be removed there are several choices for replacement. One is to replace using a dental bridge. Below are some before and after pictures that demonstrate how bridges can restore your smile.
