Aims of the Study: Were evaluation of Alveolar Bone Resorption (ABR) under the fixed dental bridge (FDB) radiographically, along with considering the impact of variations like duration, the number of pontics, and the number of abutments, elaborating and expanding more about these variations.
Materials and Methods: Forty (FDBs) were included from participants attending oral diagnosis and radiology department (Dentistry department)/Tishik International University. Each (FDB) was evaluated for the duration, the number of pontics, and the number of abutments.
The orthopantomograph (OPG) was chosen as a radiographic technique to evaluate the (ABR), and measurements were done by the NewTom program.
Results: Revealed highly significant associated level of (ABR) under (FDB) alongside duration and number of pontics, while the number of abutments was found to play an insignificant vital role in ABR.
Conclusion: FDB in conjunction with both variables (increasing number of pontics and duration more than five years) induce ABR, while the number of abutments does not considerably affect ABR.
