    If you mean that only the eye teeth are holding up the bridge, then this is too long a span. So your teeth are hurting under the stresses. You can have the bridge cut through where it joins to the eye teeth, and then look at implants or dentures for the 4 front incisors. If you try to keep the bridge, then you'll probably lose the eye teeth and be in much bigger trouble.

    Reasons for aching teeth.
    *If the bridge is new, it could be the bite too high
    *Has food impacted under the bridge or between the nearby teeth, causing the pain
    *The bridge could be loose
    *There decay under one of the crowns supporting the bridge
    *The gum disease weakened one of the supporting teeth
    *The nerve died in one of the supporting teeth, causing an abscess
    *One of the supporting teeth could be cracked
    *It could be referred pain from somewhere else
