In restorative dentistry, in particular prosthodontics, which is a focus, a board-certified specialty in restoring areas where you've lost teeth, there are several options available to you. You can do conventional bridges as discussed, where you use the natural teeth on either side of the space, connect a bunch of crowns together, and cement a permanent bridge in place, a bridge that does not come out of your mouth. Dental implants are a much more current option where the area where you're missing teeth where a bridge would have been placed, you can now have individual teeth by placing implants in the area where you're missing teeth instead of having a bridge. You can just place individual implants and close that area up with individual teeth.
