Dental Bridges

Bridging the gap

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, dental bridge work is cemented onto natural teeth or dental implants on either side of a missing tooth. These anchor teeth are called abutments. The replacement tooth (pontic) is attached to a dental crown on each abutment.

Because these bridges are secured by anchors, they feel very comfortable and secure just like the natural teeth they replace. For this procedure, two surgeries are required to place the bridge: the first to prepare the natural anchor teeth or place the implants; and the second to place the bridge.
