The article discusses dental bridges that can be constructed in order to solve problems frequently associated with partial dentures. Dental bridges put significant strain on abutment teeth, often causing them to loosen. By constructing an oscillating bridge, dentists can readjust it periodically in order to reduce continuous strain. Diagrams illustrate the technique.

    Resin-bonded fixed partial dentures have been in use for over 30 years, since the concept was first introduced in the 1970s. Initial efforts in this field suffered frequent early debond, but advances in metal alloys, treatment of the fitting surface and bonding techniques have made the...

    Background and Objective: Dentists often question the use of resin-bonded fixed partial dentures (RBFPDs) for reliable restoration of tooth-bound edentulous spaces. Initial attempts at bonding fixed partial dentures on teeth resulted in early failure due to debonding. In the 1980s and 1990s,...
