Traditional methods to replace a missing tooth or teeth include the fabrication of a fixed bridge. To replace a missing tooth with a bridge, at least one tooth on either side of the space created by the missing tooth must be prepared for a crown. Then a false tooth, or pontic, is joined to the crowns, and the entire structure is cemented to the prepared teeth. The patient cannot remove the bridge, and special aids are available to keep it clean. Today, more and more Cape Cod patients are choosing a dental implant supported crown to replace a missing tooth.
