If you have been considering a dental bridge for your smile, determining whether a bridge might address your unique smile needs is a good start. Let’s use a quick quiz to help you along in your journey.

Quiz Questions: True or False?

  1. True or False: You will only qualify to replace missing teeth with a dental bridge if you are missing three or fewer teeth.
  2. True or False: Even if you are missing only three or fewer teeth, you still might not qualify for a bridge – it depends on the configuration of those missing teeth.
  3. True or False: A bridge is a good choice for you only if you are happy with a fixed prosthetic.

Quiz Answers

  1. True. We cannot replace more than three teeth with a dental bridge. If you are missing more than this amount of teeth, you may wish to consider other options like dental implants.
  2. True. If you are missing up to three teeth, you might qualify for a bridge. However, only if those teeth are all next to each other in a row – otherwise, you will need to choose a different treatment.
  3. True. A dental bridge is known as a device that is fixed, which means it will not be going anywhere – it’s bonded in its resting place, so it stays put and offers impressive stability.
