What is a Dental Bridge?
Also commonly known as fixed partial dentures are used to help fill gaps due to tooth loss between existing teeth. They can be made from materials such as, gold, alloy, or porcelain. Removable bridges can be taken out to be cleaned, unremovable ones need to be removed by your dentist. An unremovable bridge and a removable bridge both rely on surrounding teeth for support, whereas an implant bridge is attached and supported by the jaw under the gum tissue.
