my tooth #4 is missing. I need a bridge, but my tooth #3 has a deep decay 2/3 of it is gone. My tooth #5 is a small weak tooth. How to do the bridge? Thank you very much!

  • Normally when the bridge is given for one pontic i.e. missing tooth then two abutment teeth are used. But if dentist feels that abutment teeth are not able to give sufficient support then may be one more tooth is used as abutment. It can be on either side depending on type of support needed, condition of tooth and asethetics. for more info on dental bridge you can check this link...
