A dental bridge typically consist of two or more specially fitted crowns that are placed on the abutment or anchoring teeth on either side of the space formed by your missing tooth or teeth. Fixed bridges are strong and reliable and in most cases they feel and look very much like natural teeth!
Bridges have been an integral part of modern dentistry since the early part of the last century and prior to the use of implants was the preferred method for replacing teeth. Bridge technology is still viable and therefore we’ll be sharing some basic information and discussing the advantages (in certain cases), bridges can provide over dental implants. This is in lieu of the fact that dental implants are now the tooth restoration treatment method of choice for most dentists!
