learn About Dental Bridges
How do Fixed Bridges work?
The bridge is anchored by a tooth on teeth either side of your missing tooth, which are called abutment teeth. The tooth that replaces your missing tooth is called a pontic. The pontic is cemented onto the abutment teeth in order to support it. Once it is in place a fixed bridge will look as natural as your own teeth.
Dental bridge is cemented or "fixed" in the mouth, thus preventing it from moving like dentures.
Dental bridge can restore the ability to properly chew and speak.
Dental bridge prevents your remaining teeth from shifting which causes problem in your bite.
