Dr. Tal Morr, a dentist in Miami of TM Prosthodontics, announces stress-free option for Dental Bridges called a Maryland Bridge, developed at the University of Maryland.


A Maryland Bridge has been around for twenty years, and since then improved. It is generally meant to replace missing front teeth. By resin wings, the fake tooth (Pontic) is fastened to the posterior of the two adjacent teeth, held securely in place. The Pontic is often dental porcelain connected to zirconia or metal. TM Prosthodontics, a cosmetic dentistry in Miami, announces stress-free option for Dental Bridges called a Maryland Bridge, developed at the University of Maryland.

Differing from Dental bridges, Maryland bridges are not as long-lasting as dental bridges are. Most of the time, Maryland bridges are meant to last roughly about two years. Instead of one missing tooth, dental bridges are fixed solutions for mainly 2-3 missing teeth. However, it is plausible to replace two absent teeth, but only if they are side by side. Anymore missing teeth, and the procedure is inaccessible. Some advantages of the Maryland bridges is that the surrounding teeth are not affected by it. Dentists are not required to trim down the others or crown them. Along with the teeth, there is not any intrusive procedure to the gum. Essentially, the bonding to the adjacent teeth can fortify the teeth and prevent them from becoming loose. Last but not least, the technique is inexpensive and thus easier on the patient.

It depends solely on the patient and their situation if a Maryland bridge would be a smart choice. Ideally, the patient should have a missing tooth in front, healthy oral hygiene, and strong teeth, so that the Maryland bridge will be a safe procedure. The procedure will likely extend for two visits, in which the Maryland bridges will be safely attained. For the first visit, the dentist will make molds of the patient’s teeth, in order to formulate a bridge for the procedure. When the bridge is finished, the patient will return to the dentist, and the bridge will be placed. The dentist might require the patient to visit a third time to see that the Maryland bridge is comfortable and functioning properly.
