When teeth are lost to extractions (or in some cases absent from the beginning) there tends to be a gap present, and in some circumstances this can be problematic due to a loss in function, unsatisfactory appearance or a place where food can get stuck.
A bridge functions to properly replace the missing tooth with an artificial one (much like a crown) that has customised “wings” which are attached to the teeth on either side of the gap. The materials used and construction process are the same as in the fabrication of crowns. The difference consists in the the additional “wings” which attach to the teeth on either side.
Despite the revolution of implant treatment, bridges still represent an excellent long term solution in replacing gaps. Moreover, they form an excellent interim restoration during the implant treatment.
