This appears in a list of intra-oral findings for a patient who has fractured his lower jaw in the region of teeth 33, 34 and 35.

pontics of the bridge in the lower jaw
Explanation:
A bridge consists of one or more pontics (floating units supported from the side - the actual bridge) and abutments (attached units based on remaining roots, possibly reinforced by gold posts; or on implants).

I have a 9-tooth upper bridge following a cycling accident -- 3 pontics, 4 abutments.
