A pontic, in dental terms, refers to an artificial or false tooth typically integrated into a dental prosthesis. Its primary purpose is to replace a missing natural tooth. Dentists recommend the placement of a pontic when a patient has lost a natural tooth due to various reasons such as dental trauma, root resorption, advanced periodontal disease, or unsuccessful endodontic therapy.
