Usually, when a dental bridge needs replacing it is replaced with a new bridge. However, in some cases a bridge is replaced with a dental implant and three new dental crowns (one implant crown and two crowns for protect the adjacent teeth that were previously covered by the bridge). Speak with your dentist to determine which option would be best for you. I hope this helps. Follow me for more questions and answers.
