A bridge is a permanent dental solution for replacing missing teeth. This method involves cutting down the teeth on either side of the missing tooth to be able to connect them together. Floss threaders, which slide under the bridge, are recommended to keep it clean.
One disadvantage of dental bridges if that you may have to cut down perfectly healthy teeth. Sometimes, bridges applied to the lower jaw do not last as long. Since the jaw flexes, the less flexible bridge can spring a leak on one side or the other to increase exposure and risk for tooth decay.
Sometimes, the teeth next to the gap need a filling or a crown, making this a great option to fill the gap and fix the adjacent tooth at the same time. A dental bridge can replace one or two missing teeth easily, and sometimes more if there is enough support.
