Anterior missing teeth can be a conundrum -- do you do a Maryland Bridge, a flipper partial, implant or conventional fixed bridge? For the past 25 years Terry Shaw has been doing composite bridges with excellent success. These are a great solution for post-ortho missing anterior teeth until the patient is old enough for an implant. Seniors who are on a limited budget. A fast solution for someone who loses an anterior tooth and must wait for several months for bone healing and remodeling before more definitive treatment. I offer these as a permanent bridge for someone who can only afford limited dental treatment.
