What are Dental Bridges?
Dental bridges are prosthetic dental devices which are used to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge is comprised of fake teeth, known as pontics, which are used to replace the missing teeth. On either side of the pontics are two or more dental crowns (known as the abutment teeth). These are used to anchor the fake teeth to the existing natural teeth or dental implants. When the prosthetic is placed, it literary creates a bridge between the remaining natural teeth, hence the name.
