Resin Retained Bridgework
Gaps are filled with teeth much like crowns but the supporting teeth have little or no preparation and metal wings are bonded with resins onto the backs of supporting teeth. We use resin retained bridgework where the support teeth are largely still intact. This allows most of the tooth structure of the supporting teeth to be retained and therefore maintains the integral strength of the teeth. In the 1970s and 80s, the early designs were unpredictable which lead to many dentists abandoning this type of bridgework. However, researchers at the UCL Eastman Dental Institute carried out extensive testing until predictable designs parameters were discovered. The modern resin-retained bridge is both conservative of tooth structure and highly predictable.
