What are bridges?
A bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis. It is an option for people who want to replace a missing tooth or teeth and ensure there is no movement from adjacent teeth into the space of the missing tooth. The teeth beside the space where a tooth once was, serve as anchors for the bridge. These anchor teeth are then prepared to accommodate the crowns. Afterwards, a bridge is bonded securely over these teeth. The replacement tooth, which is called a pontic tooth is attached to the adjacent crowns.
