Different types of bridges are available and your dentist may advise you about the best option for you.

A space or a gap resulting from a missing tooth can cause difficulty in chewing or can result in movement of the adjacent teeth. Amongst the options available to fill the space are dentures, implants, and bridges, bridges being the most popular option. A bridge is basically a false tooth (pontic) replacing the missing tooth/teeth.

The dentist will take impressions of your teeth, and these would then be sent to a laboratory, bridges would be custom made to suit your mouth. In the meantime, the dentist may place a temporary crown or bridge. When the new permanent bridge has been made the dentist will be permanently placed.
