teeth are heavily decayed they may be too
weak to survive with just a filling. By
placing a dental crown, a tooth may
be given a new lease of life. Even when a
single tooth is lost, a denture may not be
required as a bridge can be made which spans
the gap with a tooth attached to those next
to the space. Sometimes when a single small
tooth is lost at the front of the mouth a
simple bridge can be made which has 'wings'
that are glued to the back of the adjacent
teeth. This results in fewer teeth being
damaged by the drill.
A dental bridge allows the dentist to replace lost
teeth without the use of a denture.
Basically a false tooth is held in place by
being attached to a tooth next to it. The
disadvantage is that the teeth next to the
space have to be prepared in a similar way
to a crown in order to accept the bridge.
Dental bridges are soon getting obsolete
with the advent of Implants.
