In most of the cases, the pontic is placed between the abutment teeth. However, there are some clinical situations when the patient does not have teeth on both sides of the toothless gap.
Cantilever bridges are dental bridges that are designed when abutment teeth are present on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth. In these cases, the pontic is located outside the abutment teeth.
