As the name of this appliance implies, a dental bridge is made out of three or more pieces that fit into the open space in the mouth, “bridging” the gap. Most bridges are made of a pontic (false) tooth, held together by two or more abutment crowns (a “cap” that covers the tooth, approximating the tooth’s normal size and shape).
Nearly everyone who has one or more missing teeth is a candidate for a dental bridge. During your visit, Dr. Samuelson will examine your mouth and the location of the missing tooth or teeth to determine if dental bridges will work for you!
