A dental bridge is a device used to replace one or more missing teeth. Losing a permanent tooth can cause problems with the neighbouring and opposing teeth, as the remaining teeth begin to shift for support and chewing purposes. This can accelerate gum disease and break down the bone structure.
An effective solution to replace a missing tooth is a dental bridge. A bridge is made using an artificial tooth in place of the missing tooth and employing the support of neighbouring teeth or a crown/s to serve as anchors. The replacement tooth is made up of the same material as a crown.
