A bridge can solve the issue of missing teeth. A bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis that has crowns on either end that act as anchors. The anchor crowns are connected by the replacement missing tooth. The entire prosthesis, anchor crowns and replacement tooth, goes into place at the same time as one piece. A bridge requires the missing tooth to have teeth on either side. Bridges can be utilized for front teeth or back teeth and can be made from a variety of materials.

It is always best to keep your current teeth healthy and strong, but a bridge can help if you have missing teeth.
