What is a Dental Bridge?

A Dental Bridge is also known as a "Fixed Partial Denture" and bridges a gap between the abutment teeth either side of the gap. The false tooth that spans the gap is called a pontic and is fused between two dental porcelain crowns to form a dental bridge. You can use this procedure to replace one or more missing teeth or you can consider the use of a dental implant which is another method of replacing missing teeth.
