Dental bridges are used when a patient is missing a tooth or teeth between healthy natural teeth that are still in the mouth. They are made of natural-looking artificial teeth and are held in place using support provided by those natural teeth.
Permanently attached bridges, known as fixed bridges, are either bonded to the adjacent supporting teeth or can be attached to dental implants. Removable bridges are held in place using clasps. These devices keep a removable bridge steady. Removable bridges can be taken out for easy cleaning and then reinserted.
