Resin Bonded Bridge – Maryland Bridge

Resin Bonded Bridge, also known as Maryland bridge is a dental prosthesis constructed of a cast metal framework which is luted to the enamel of abutment teeth by an adhesive composite resin.

Indications
In situations where the abutments are unrestored.

Advantages

Disadvantages
Resin bonded bridge is unsuitable where there is severe tooth wear, parafunction or insufficient interocclusal clearance.
