A dental bridge covers or bridges the gap between teeth. After you lose a tooth, your dentist may suggest that you get a bridge. Once a bridge is placed, it works just like your natural teeth.A bridge can keep your other teeth from moving out of place and provide good esthetic and functional results.
When the dental bridge is supported by natural teeth, natural teeth needs to be prepared which could weaken them and make them more susceptible to decay. To avoid this, implants can be used instead of natural teeth to support bridge.
