A bridge is one method of replacing missing teeth. Crowns are prepared on the natural teeth adjacent to the missing teeth and false teeth (pontics) are fused to the crown. The whole unit of crowns and replacement teeth (pontics) is the bridge. It is cemented onto the natural teeth. The bridge is not removable, it stays fixed to the teeth. In the past, this was the highest standard of care for replacing missing teeth and in some cases it still is. Implants can also be considered for tooth replacement.
