What is a bridge?
When a tooth is missing, a three-unit bridge can be a good choice for replacing it. In a three-unit bridge, an artificial tooth is connected on each end to crowns. The crowns are placed over the neighboring teeth to hold the bridge in place. A bridge may be made of gold, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal.

It is important to keep the adjacent teeth and gums healthy so they can continue to support the bridge. Brush and floss normally after meals. We will instruct you on how to use superfloss or floss threaders to clean under the artificial tooth.
