A fixed bridge is a restoration that fills the space of missing teeth with an artificial tooth called a Pontic.

This is used to replace one or more teeth that have been lost. It is permanently bonded or cemented into place, which means that only a dentist can remove it.

They can look and feel like natural teeth. They do not require removal for cleaning, however it is important to floss underneath with special flossers to prevent decay and gum disease on the teeth that the bridge attaches. They may be less costly and require less wait time for final delivery than dental implants.
