A missing tooth is a really serious matter and also can make you feel uncomfortable. Ain’t it? Dental bridging is a practise through which you can replace your missing teeth with artificial ones. To be precise, a Dental Bridge is a tailor-made replacement tooth, popularly termed as a pontic that is being planted between either of the two teeth. The bridge is adjoined to the natural teeth on both sides of the gap that is left by the missing teeth. Bridges are naturally built from porcelain, gold, alloys or a mix of these materials.

So, if you implement healthy oral habits like brushing twice a day, flossing once daily and using an antiseptic mouthwash, and go for regular check-ups, then you can preserve them for long.
