If a tooth is lost or needs extraction, the resulting gap can be closed with a bridge. To do this, the teeth that are supposed to support the bridge must be firm. Herein, the dentist grinds the two neighboring teeth, crowns them, and connects them with a metal bridge. The bridge visually adapts to the row of teeth; it can be veneered with ceramic or made of all-ceramic. To protect neighboring teeth that are still intact, adhesive bridges can be used in certain cases- such an awesome and pain-free process.
A bridge is a fixed denture firmly set in the oral cavity to replace one or more missing teeth.
- Fill the missing teeth, prevent the adjacent teeth from shifting, and avoid irregular teeth and an abnormal bite.
- Restore the functions of chewing, articulation, and maintaining the appearance of teeth.
