Dental Bridge Procedure
A Dental Bridge is one of three methods used for filling the gap left by a missing tooth. An alternative to the Dental Implant
(which, like the Bridge, is fixed), and the Partial Denture
—a removable false tooth or teeth—the Bridge is used when there are fewer teeth to replace, and on one side of the mouth only.
Replacement of missing teeth is important, and not just for cosmetic reasons. Gaps can place strain on teeth either side, which ‘lean’ into the vacant space, altering the biting together of the upper and lower teeth.
