I had to have a bridge placed today that anchors off of my very back molar, replaces the front molar and is anchored to my bicuspid (I had other bicuspid extracted for orthodontia years ago). My bridge is not touching the bottom teeth at all. It feels awkward and my jaw is sore because it keeps "trying to find a place to sit" on that side so to speak. My dentist said the bridge isn't supposed to touch the bottom teeth so that it prevents it from breaking. Is this correct?
