Abstract: Designs for resin-bonded bridges (also known as resin-retained bridges) have evolved since their first incarnation as the Rochette bridge, progressing to the Maryland design in order to improve micromechanical retention and longevity of the bridge.1 Resin cements allow chemical adhesion of the wings to the etched enamel of the tooth, but mechanical retention is also desirable to help protect the bond.
