A bridge is prosthesis that is a fixed option to replace a missing tooth.
This is an option there is a missing tooth area with a tooth behind and in front of it. The bridge uses those teeth as an anchor for the missing tooth. The three teeth are joined. The bridge is tooth colored and tooth shaped. As it is all joined, to clean underneath the bridge, one must floss under or use a water pik.
Bridges were the only alternative to dentures before dental implants, and although dental implants are increasing in popularity, bridges still have their use in certain situations where an implant won’t work.
