Eleven year surivival of bridges placed in the general dental services in England and Wales » sciencedirect.comShare on Facebook | Share on zahnigroups | Share on ALUMNIGROUPS
Data for over 80,000 different adult patients were analysed, of whom 46% were male and 54% female. A total of 7,874 abutments (6,800 conventional and 1,074 resin-retained) were obtained from the data over a period of eleven years. Factors which were found to reduce outcome of bridges included type of bridge, patient payment exemption status, patient attendance pattern and position of the bridge in the patient’s mouth. Survival of conventional bridge abutments has been shown to be 72% at 10 years, this being similar survival time to crowns. Various patient factors and bridge type were also found to influence survival.
