A bridge is a way to replace one or more missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth makes it easier to chew, improves appearance and also keeps teeth, gums and jaws healthy. Spaces left by missing teeth affect the rest of the teeth. If even one tooth is missing, other teeth may slowly shift out of place. This will change the bite and subsequently may make the jaw sore, lead to tooth decay, gum disease and can also change the smile. A fixed bridge is one or more replacement teeth attached to the natural teeth next to them. Once it’s in place, the bridge is not meant to be removed. For a conventional bridge the teeth on either side of the space to be filled must be reshaped teeth that hold crowns to support the bridge.
