Case Study: Maryland bridges
Congenitally missing lateral incisors and the patient did not want to have surgery.
Prof Dr Christian Mehl
As an alternative to a restoration with implants, the choice fell on all-ceramic adhesive bridges (Maryland bridges) in order to be able to restore the smile without a surgical procedure. For each missing tooth, an individual framework made of high-performance ceramics was milled, which was then individually veneered. The finished adhesive bridges were then adhesively attached to the backs of the two central incisors.
