What are Dental Bridges?
Bridges are dental prosthetics that are fabricated to look as indistinguishable as possible from your own natural teeth. Bridges are held into place by existing teeth that are adjacent to the gap. Teeth that help sustain the bridge are referred to as abutments, whereas the tooth that is being replaced is known as the pontic.
Bridges are an ideal solution for patients who are missing one or a few teeth but whose oral health is otherwise robust. Dental bridges can also be excellent restorative options for patients who already have implants in place.
