Fixed Bridges

 

A bridge is a dental appliance that replaces one or more natural missing teeth, thereby "bridging" the space between two teeth. A dental bridge is made up of three or more (depending on the space) dental crowns fused together. By closing the space, the bridge connects teeth on either side of the space hence the name �bridge�.

A bridge is the most natural choice to fill the space in your mouth left by missing teeth. If left unfilled, this space can cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position and can cause teeth and gums to become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease that can cause further tooth loss. Fixed bridges not only correct an altered bite and improve your chewing ability and speech, but they also safeguard your appearance by preventing the collapse of your facial features that can cause premature wrinkles and age lines.

As in the case of crowns, there can be different materials used to fabricate the bridge depending on the situation.
