A bridge is also known as a fixed partial denture. It is a dental restoration that is used to replace a missing tooth. A dental bridge is joined permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
A bridge is made up of two crowns on either side of your missing tooth. The two anchoring teeth support the bridge, and the false tooth is put in between. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
