Anything supported at the ends, which serves to keep some other thing from resting upon the object spanned, as in engraving, watchmaking, etc., or which forms a platform or staging over which something passes or is conveyed.
An artificial appliance used to replace the natural teeth, which is bonded to adjacent teeth.
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth in a patient's mouth. A dental bridge usually consists of two crowns with a false tooth "bridged" between. The dentist places the crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap for strength and stability. Other options for replacing missing teeth include partial dentures and dental implants.
Pertaining to a permanent prosthetic replacement of one or more missing teeth. Bridges span the space between teeth and are secured in place by cementation to abutment teeth or implants adjacent to the space.
A structure designed to carry a road over a drainage feature by spanning it.
Fixed or removable dental appliance that replaces lost teeth.
A structure that joins two parts. For example, a dental bridge contains artificial teeth and joins the natural teeth at either end.
A fixed prosthesis replacing one or several missing teeth, anchored to either natural teeth or dental implants.
A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. It is typically cemented to supporting teeth or implants next to the space.
A nonremovable restoration that is used to replace missing teeth.
A permanently cemented appliance that replaces missing teeth. The side teeth are called abutements and the missing replacement tooth is called a pontic.
A dental appliance that replaces lost teeth. It can be either removable or fixed.
When a tooth is lost it leaves a space. If the non-removable (fixed) prosthetic replacement is supported by crowns on either side of the space, it is called a bridge.
A non-removable prosthetic device used to replace missing teeth
Replacement of missing teeth with a non-removable prosthesis.
a fixed prosthesis designed to replace missing teeth. A conventional bridge uses the teeth adjacent to the edentulous (toothless) site as anchorage to suspend the missing tooth or teeth. All teeth in a bridge are usually splinted together. An implant bridge may sometimes not suspend a missing tooth, but rather splint all teeth, which are attached to implants together, in order to improve the biomechanical loading characteristics of the implant fixtures.
a replacement tooth between two healthy teeth.
a restoration that replaces or spans the space where one or more teeth have been lost.
an artificial fixed or removable prosthesis replacing one or more teeth.( more on the subject)
A tooth-replacing fixed appliance having one or more crowns that serve as an abutment to anchor the bridge to existing teeth when it is cemented into place.
when missing teeth, a dentist can use two or more teeth present to bridge the space
A common fixed-appliance that serves to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is cemented into position. A crown or crowns anchor the bridge, while the replacement tooth is called the pontic.
A restoration of one of more missing teeth which cannot be readily removed, it is permanently attached to natural teeth or roots which act as primary support.
Artificial tooth held in the mouth by an adjacent tooth or Abutment
Appliance to replace a missing tooth or teeth, attached to and supported by abutment teeth.
a fixed or removable replacement for one or several natural teeth, usually cemented at each end to a natural tooth.
A prosthetic replacement of one or more missing teeth that is cemented or attached to the abutment teeth adjacent to the space.
A fixed partial denture or prosthetic replacement of one or more missing teeth which is attached to the adjacent teeth.
A permanent restoration that is used to replace teeth that are missing.
a crystal which grows between and joins two crystals.
Often used when one or more teeth are missing, a bridge consists of a replacement tooth that is attached to crowns on the adjacent teeth. The replacement tooth is shaped to fit the contours of its adjacent teeth, and the bridge is cemented to the teeth.
a permanent prosthetic that is made to replace one or more missing teeth. Attaches to existing teeth on either side of the space.
See Fixed Partial Denture and/or Removable Partial Denture. See also Pontic.
one or more artificial teeth attached to your adjacent teeth.
A fixed appliance (prosthesis) that replaces missing teeth. A bridge is a series of crowns (abutments and pontics).
Fixed or removable dental appliance which replaces lost teeth.
Dentist use bridges to replace missing teeth by way of fixing a false tooth to crowns fixed to adjacent teeth.
A restoration of one or more missing teeth which cannot be readily removed by the patient or dentist; it is permanently attached to natural teeth or roots which furnish the primary support to the appliance.
Prosthetic (false) teeth or row of teeth that spans between two natural teeth (See Illustration)
A prosthesis which is fixed inside the mouth to replace missing teeth.
This is a device used to replace missing teeth by attaching artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, bridging the gap where one or more teeth may have been removed. Bridges can be either permanent (fixed bridges), or they can be removable. A fixed bridge is cemented or bonded into place and can only be removed by a dentist. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth by either metal clasps or by precision attachments.
Stationary dental prosthesis (appliance) fixed to teeth adjacent to a space; replaces one or more missing teeth, cemented or bonded to supporting teeth or implants adjacent to the space
Fixed bridge is a prosthetic replacement of one or more missing teeth usually cemented to the abutment teeth adjacent to the space; removable bridge (partial denture) is a prosthetic replacement of one or more missing teeth on a framework that can be removed by the patient.
A non-removable, tooth-supported, framework that replaces one or more missing or damaged teeth with lab fabricated teeth.
a dental device that fills in gaps from missing teeth , fixed bridge, a permanent bridge , removable bridge, a bridge that can be put in and taken out of the mouth.
A non-removable restoration that is used to replace missing teeth.
a non-removable replacement for missing teeth made with crowns and pontics.
A bridge replaces missing teeth. Teeth adjacent to the area of missing teeth are crowned and used as anchors to support the restorations.
One or more artifcial teeth attached, usually on both sides, by crowns to adjacent teeth. It is used to maintain space and function for missing teeth. May be made of gold or porcelain on gold.
A replacement for one or more missing or extracted natural teeth, supported and held by attachments to restored teeth, and usually not removable. (Sometimes referred to as a fixed denture.) The cost of bridgework is usually calculated in units consisting of each crowned abutment tooth and each artificial tooth replacing a missing natural tooth (called a pontic).
A set of one or more false teeth supported by a metal framework, used to replace one or more missing teeth. See the entire definition of Bridge
A denture anchored to teeth on either side of missing teeth.
artificial teeth used to replace missing teeth that are attached, usually on both sides, by crowns to adjacent teeth.
A dental appliance used to replace one or more missing teeth. It is comprised of a false tooth or teeth permanently affixed to the adjacent teeth (called abutments). Occasionally only a single abutment is used as a cantilever bridge. It is a fixed appliance that cannot be removed by the patient.
nonremovable replacement for one or more missing teeth, anchored by teeth on either side of the gap. Bridges restore chewing ability and prevent neighboring teeth from shifting, which can result in a poor bite and gum disease.
one or more artificial teeth attached, usually on both sides, to crowns on adjacent teeth. It is used to maintain space and function for missing teeth. Go to Bridge procedure.
A bridge is a custom-made device anchored to neighbouring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one must be prepared as crowns. These will serve as abutments to hold the replacement tooth in place.
Prosthetic (false) tooth or row of teeth that spans between two natural teeth to replace missing or lost teeth. An alternative to a bridge would be a dental implant. See "Replacing missing teeth."
A fixed appliance (prosthesis) that replaces missing teeth. A bridge is made up of false teeth (pontics) supported by anchor teeth (abutments). When a single pontic is supported by a single abutment, the bridge is said to be cantilevered.
A dental bridge is a prosthesis used to replace missing teeth and is usually not removable by the patient.
