What is a fixed bridge?

A bridge is a fixed dental prosthesis that replaces one or more missing teeth. It consists of a set of at least three rings welded together. One or more artificial teeth rest on adjacent natural teeth or on two implants. The teeth or implants on each side serve as pillars for the bridge.

The main disadvantage of a bridge is that it alters the healthy teeth adjacent to the artificial tooth. Failure of a part of the bridge can result in the loss of a healthy abutment tooth, as can the loss or erosion of the bridge cement.

Sometimes, a dental implant and a crown are a better long-term solution and over the years prevent bone resorption in your mouth.

Oral hygiene should be the same as for natural teeth. In order to clean under the bridge, it is necessary to floss with a threader such as your dentist or hygienist has taught you to do.
