BRIDGE: A bridge is a connected row of teeth tat can replace one or several missing teeth. It is held in place permanently by crowns which are cemented to the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or space. Because the bridge is a connected piece it requires maintenance by flossing under and around the teeth holding it in place. It also requires the teeth holding it in are in reasonably good condition, as very weak teeth cannot support a bridge long term. In such a case, an implant retained crown(s) may be the best choice.
