The Maryland Bridge is less invasive for single tooth replacement than conventional bridgework, and enables the dental practitioner to splint or replace missing teeth esthetically, with minimal tooth modification. It offers greatly improved bond strength over earlier perforated resin-bonded retainers.
New materials and techniques allow for better retention resulting in the convenience of a fixed restoration at a lower cost. 100% high strength Zirconia Maryland bridges offer ideal esthetics, maximum strength and durability with CAD/CAM precision fits.
A major appeal of this type of bridgework is that adjacent teeth do not require over-prepping. Neighboring tooth structures are not shortened to accommodate an anchoring crown that supports the bridge unit.
