Dental Bridge: What to Expect
23 September 2022
Dental bridges are one of the many options to treat a patient who has some missing teeth. Typically, there will be a support tooth on each side of the vacant space in the mouth. These are considered support teeth that will be used as ‘abutments’ to hold the prosthetic tooth known as a ‘pontic’ in place.

The pontic is what your dentist may refer to when talking about your bridge.
