Bridges

Bridges are an alternative to an implant or denture for replacing a single tooth or multiple teeth.

A bridge uses the teeth ahead and behind the missing space to serve as an anchor for a restoration that will fill the missing space. The bridge will be both shaped and coloured like teeth; the only difference is that since all the teeth are joined together in a bridge, you have to floss underneath the bridge to keep it clean.

Bridges were the only alternative to dentures before dental implants, and although dental implants are increasing in popularity, bridges still remain useful in certain situations.
