A dental bridge is a fixed or non-removable appliance used to replace missing teeth. By getting an implant not only fills the space left by missing teeth, it also prevents other teeth from drifting out of position. There are several types of bridges. the traditional bridge is one consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached to pontics (artificial teeth), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.
Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years, however they may need replacement or need to be re-cemented due to normal wear.
Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge.
