This session will outline the various aspects to take into consideration when treatment planning for bridges.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • undertake a case assessment in terms of the whole mouth as to the feasibility of a bridge when replacing a missing tooth
  • determine whether a tooth adjacent to a space is suitable to act as a bridge abutment
  • explain the different requirements, advantages and disadvantages of resin bonded versus conventional bridges
  • propose a suitable bridge design for different edentulous spans

When considering bridgework, careful planning is essential to ensure long term success. A risk/benefit calculation needs to be agreed with the patient before a treatment plan and quote can be provided on paper and patient consent can be obtained.
