There are several options available to an individual to replace missing teeth. One of these options is a dental bridge. There are many types of dental bridges available, and they serve not only to replace missing teeth, but also to prevent the shifting of other teeth and lower the risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease.
Fixed dental bridges are permanent. Conventional and cantilever dental bridges are two types of fixed bridges that also require a bit of shaping to the teeth that will be on either side of the bridge, in order to provide an optimal fit.
