Dental bridges offer a simple and minimally invasive solution to the problems posed by missing teeth. While these prosthetics can restore your smile and quality of life, they do not last forever. Here are a few of the most common problems that may cause a dental bridge to fail and what you can do about them.
If you have one or more missing teeth, your dentist may fill the gap using a dental bridge. It is an artificial tooth (called a pontic) that is anchored into place using each adjacent tooth on the side of the gap. The procedure is quick and takes only two dental appointments, making it a highly convenient tooth replacement choice.
