Can I always have a bridge to replace missing teeth?

The real answer is no. Your dentist will help you decide the best way of replacing your missing teeth. Sometimes the adjacent teeth are too weak to support a bridge. If the adjacent teeth are pristine, it may be considered a disadvantage and damaging to prepare them to hold a new bridge. Once your dentist has discussed the pros and cons of bridgework, you can make an informed choice on how to restore the missing tooth to suit your needs.
