Dental Bridge - Lateral Slide, Too Much Pressure? (photo)
I got a PFM bridge (gold chewing surface) for teeth #2, 3, 4 (temporarily cemented). The first 2 times it came back with cusp tips way too high causing interferences. This time the height is fine but my teeth slide to the left and backward when I bite down, putting too much pressure on #14. I think the centric line is off and lingual cups don't have enough incline (I can slide my teeth side to side pretty easily while in maximum intercuspation). Can the lab fix the surface or is a remake needed?
