Fixed Bridge Placement
To replace a missing tooth with a conventional three-unit bridge, teeth next to the gap are reduced.
The custom-made bridge is placed over the prepared teeth.
After adjustments are made, the bridge is cemented into place.
Flossing Under a Bridge
Using a floss threader, insert floss under the bridge.
Gently rub the side of each tooth next to the bridge with the floss, cleaning under the gum too.
Rub the floss from side to side along the underside of the pontic.
