I have two bridges. One done in California around 1985 and one done in Texas in 2000. The first, I had to have a tooth removed. So it was a little more unpleasant. On the whole, I did not experience anything more unusual than getting a cavity filled (If that). It is now 2015 and no problems on either one.

My metallic dental bridge was fixed on the last 3 teeth, in between tooth was missing, wisdom tooth was removed on the right side. After 8 years, I felt pain on crown. Dentist found no reason and pain subsided. Again after 2 months, pain was terrific and I showed it to the dentist. Root canals were checked with x-ray for 2 supporting teeth and found ok. Then deep cleaning was performed on and under the bridge by dentist to check if it works. This happened 4 weeks ago. I am better and I hope it works but advised to eat cautiously on that side.
