Which Pontic Should You Get For Your Dental Bridge?
If you are missing a couple of teeth, a fixed dental appliance like a bridge can be a good option to fill in the gap. Bridges are made up of two basic components: the abutment teeth and the pontic. The abutments act as a framework and anchor to your natural teeth (e.g. with a crown) or to a dental implant. The pontic is the false tooth that fills in the gap of missing teeth and is placed between abutment teeth.
