What is the purpose of a dental bridge?
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
A dental bridge is a dental restoration that usually includes two dental crowns and a replacement tooth (pontic) that fills the gap left by your missing tooth. The dental crowns are secured to adjacent teeth on either side of the empty space and provide support for the artificial tooth. A dental bridge can keep your remaining teeth from shifting, in addition to completing the appearance of your smile.
