We never really notice just how important our teeth are until we lose them. If you have lost a tooth, you are probably struggling daily with biting and chewing. You may even feel conscious about talking, smiling, and laughing around other people.
Missing a tooth or teeth can really affect not only functionality but appearance as well. For this reason, many people choose to get it fixed as quickly as possible. This is where dental bridges come in.
A dental bridge is basically a false tooth known as pontic that is custom-made for you to replace your missing tooth. It is literally a “bridge” that connects the adjoining teeth. It is held in place by the two teeth on either side of the missing tooth/teeth. These teeth are known as abutment teeth.
