As indicated by it’s name, a “bridge” literally closes the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Also known as a fixed partial denture, this form of dental restoration is used to replace a missing tooth by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
A dental bridge is used when one or more teeth are missing. It looks, feels like, and functions like a natural tooth. A bridge is permanently cemented and does not need to be removed to be cleaned.
