Bridges are a solution for a missing tooth or teeth by using the teeth next to the gap.
Tooth loss can leave unsightly gaps and a bridge is one way to fill that gap. A gap can also have other consequences such as increased pressure on other teeth and teeth drifting into the space.
A bridge involves using the teeth adjacent to the gap for support and so they need to be in good condition to hold a bridge. There are different types of bridges which can be used depending upon the condition of the neighbouring teeth, a traditional bridge involves two crowns joined by a false tooth in middle and a bonded bridge involve a false tooth attached to wings to glue to the back of your own teeth. Speak to your dentist to see which is suitable for you.
