Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The restoration can be made from gold alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. There are new and exciting metal free materials that can now be used in place of the traditional metal fused to gold alloy restorations. These materials have been proven to be as strong as metal but much more cosmetic over time than their predecessors
Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist
An implant bridge attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw or under the gum tissue. Depending on which type of bridge Dr. Boehly recommends, its success depends on its foundation. So it's very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.
