A fixed dental bridge is a non-removable prosthesis attached to remaining natural teeth.
The false tooth or teeth literally bridge the gap between natural teeth. For a long time,fixed bridges were the best alternative for people who had lost teeth, as they were quite successful and esthetically pleasing. Unfortunately, bridges can also present some problems because the natural teeth that lie on either side of the bridge are filed to accept the appliance. This step in the bridge-making procedure may make these teeth prone to bacterial plaque accumulations, decay, periodontal disease, and the possible need for future root canals.
