Traditional way of replacing missing teeth is by dental bridge , where support for missing teeth is been taken from ADJACENT  HEALTHY TEETH .
For bridge it is necessary that support giving teeth are healthy .
Support giving teeth are grind in  biologic and mechanical way. They are retainers , and receive external coverage .
For replacing single tooth  two adjacent teeth are grind . So it is a three unit bridge .
Bridge is fabricated  out side mouth , on models in the laboratory .
Bridge is fixed in the mouth by special dental cements .
