Does a bridge have an effect on the teeth around it?
Can the Permanent Teeth That Anchor the Bridge Become Loose when a Bridge is Removed?
Doctor Answers (1)
Whether the supporting teeth under a bridge become mobile after removal of the bridge depends on the reason for removal. So long as the teeth and bone supporting them is healthy, I would not expect any problems with loose teeth. However, if these teeth have not been cared for properly, decay under the bridge margin has occurred or supporting bone has been lost, mobility may occur. If it does, eliminating any dental disease and splinting the teeth together with a new bridge should rectify the problem.
