An Update on Resin-Bonded Bridges


Abstract - Since the introduction of the ‘Rochette’ bridge in the 1970s the resin-bonded bridge has undergone a number of developments to become a commonly used technique for replacement of a missing tooth, especially in a minimally restored dentition. One of the major advantages of the resin-bonded bridge is that it requires less tooth preparation than conventional bridgework, with some authorities advising no preparation at all. Some reports have suggested poor long-term success rates, however, if used in appropriate clinical situations, this treatment modality can be extremely successful. The aim of this paper is to review the literature relating to resin-bonded bridges and suggest recommendations for clinical practice concerning the provision of resin-bonded bridges.

KEY WORDS: Resin-bonded bridges, review, success-rate, design, cementation
