    Default number of teeth a bridge can hold

    This really depends on the type of bridge, some bridges are designed to hole hust one tooth supported by 2 supporting teeth other bridges that are supported by a full row of dental implants could hold a complete arch of upper or lower teeth. However for implants it is important that there is sufficient bone to be able to support the implants which your dentist will assess.

    What is your situation do you have 1, 2 or multiple missing teeth?

    it also depends to a large extent on the health of the teeth supporting the bridge and there position in the mouth
