If you are missing one or more teeth, you may notice the difference when chewing and talking. Bridges can help you get a smile back.
A bridge, also called a fixed partial denture, replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and literally “saves” the space in which there was previously one or more teeth.
Bridges can be made of gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and are attached to the surrounding teeth, which serve as a support.
Unlike a removable bridge, which can be removed and cleaned, only the fixed bridge can be removed by the dentist.
An implant bridge connects artificial teeth directly to the jaw or under the gum tissue. Depending on the type of bridge that the dentist recommends, it success depends on the base, so it is very important to keep the other teeth healthy and strong.
