Dental Bridges span the gap between a missing tooth.
Fixed dental bridges are supported by the teeth that are adjacent to the missing tooth. They are an excellent way of replacing teeth, and before the advent of implants, they were often the best way to replace a missing tooth. The disadvantages of fixed dental bridges are that they often require removing healthy tooth structure on the adjacent teeth, they tie together three or more teeth, and are much more difficult to floss than implants. The advantages are that no surgery is required and that the missing tooth is restored more quickly with a fixed dental bridge than with an implant.
