I Feel a Gap at the Back of my Dental Bridge and the Gum Line, Can Infection Get in Between?
I have just had a new zircinium bridge fitted. I can feel a gap between the crown edges and my gum line. The dentist said it is okay, but surely bacteria can get in and cause infection. Shouldn't the crowns fit inside the gumline with no gap?
