If you want to fill the space left by a missing or removed tooth, a dental bridge might be the solution you’ve been looking for. There are several types of dental bridges to choose from:
- Cantilever bridges are used to replace a tooth that does not have supporting teeth on both sides of the affected area.
- Maryland bonded bridges include artificial teeth and gums, and are held in place by a metal frame.
- Traditional bridges are the most common, and literally bridge the gap of an empty tooth space by securing a false tooth using crowns on the teeth on either side.
