What is a bridge and what is it used for?
Many people put off replacing missing teeth due to the busyness of life, cost, or fear of pain and commitment. However, putting off tooth replacement can lead to increased dental damage. Missing teeth not only cause a lack of confidence, but can also lead to issues with biting, chewing capabilities, as well as jaw and tooth deterioration from uneven pressure. However, many people do not realize that dental bridges provide a superior fit and match to replace one or more missing teeth. These fixed bridges are composed of multiple crowns put on both sides of the missing section of teeth in order to support one, or a row, of false teeth, also called pontics.
