Bridges involve using two adjacent teeth to replace a missing tooth in between or using one tooth to replace an adjacent gap. Types of bridges:

  1. Conventional bridges which involve cutting of the abutment tooth. This type of bridges is rarely recommended these days as it could compromise the health of the abutment teeth long-term.
  2. Resin bonded bridges which involves using one natural tooth to bond a false tooth to its intact surface. There are good indications for using this method but it may not be suitable in some cases.
  3. Some bridges can also be fixed to your jaw with dental implants, if you have several teeth next to each other that are missing.

Once you have a bridge fitted, you will have to take extra care during your daily hygiene regime to ensure it stays plaque free and does not cause bad breath.
