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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
