WHAT ARE DENTAL BRIDGES
Before the dramatic improvement in dental implants, fixed bridges were the only option available to patients who wanted something natural-looking and non-movable. Unlike a removable partial denture, a fixed bridge has no clasps, feels like natural teeth, and is cemented into place in the mouth.
A fixed bridge can be used to replace one or more teeth, depending on certain circumstances. The technique involved uses the teeth adjacent to those that were lost to support the replacement. The most common way to use adjacent teeth as "anchors" is by placing crowns on them.
