A bridge is a fixed device that replaces one or several missing teeth.
A bridge will use the teeth on either side of the gap to anchor on to. It will only be possible if the teeth to support the bridge are strong enough and if they have good bone support. The teeth on either side of the gap are prepared, crowns are placed over the prepared teeth and these are attached to the artificial tooth (also called a pontic).
We will discuss various types of bridge made from different materials to see which is the most suitable for you.
