If a tooth or some teeth are missing due to extractions or congenital missing then dental bridges are a good way to replace missing teeth. It connects the adjacent teeth of the missing tooth and create a bridge. It is made of Porcelain, metal alloys,gold.To create a bridge we need to prepare the adjacent teeth of the missing tooth area and re counter them to create an abutments.Then take an impression to send it to dental lab for fabrication of the bridge. You  get a temporary bridge at the same day then you will come back for follow up visit to set the dental bridge and place it on abutments then apply adhesive to make sure it is set.  Dental bridge can be made of Porcelain,Porcelain fused to metal or metal alloys.Dental bridge or fixed partial denture will enhance your dental function and improve your smile as well.It is good  to eat soft foods for the first few days after having your bridge placed but later on you can have normal food.If you have missing tooth it is good to get a bridge to enhance your dental function and prevent the teeth movement to missing area.
