Oftentimes, people weigh in which treatment they would go for. Are they going to do dental bridge or a dental implant? This article will help you to make up your mind on which of the two you would go for. Dental Bridges are used to bridge the gap between one or more missing teeth. You can do bridge if the adjacent teeth have large fillings and will be needing crowns or bridge in the future.
