Dental Bridges Treatment

Dental Bridges Treatment


A dental bridge is placed around the infected tooth to provide support. The bridge is made from 2 or sometimes more than two crowns which are placed on both the sides of the infected tooth. These surrounding teeth work as anchors and are named as abutment teeth. The bridge has a false tooth in between the anchoring teeth which is known as pontics. The pontics can be made using various materials such as alloys, gold, and porcelain or a mix of all of them.
