Dental Bridge

Overview

A dental bridge is an appliance used to replace one or more missing teeth. It is made out of three pieces that fit into the open space in the mouth “bridging” the gap. Most bridges are made of a false tooth, known as a pontic tooth, held together by two crowns – a “cap” that covers the tooth, approximating its normal size and shape. This trio is then permanently attached to the surrounding teeth of each side of the gap.

There are many types of dental bridges. Your oral health specialist will recommend the most appropriate one for your mouth condition and the location of the missing teeth.
