I have a missing molar tooth. Can you get a dental bridge for molars?

You can have a dental bridge for a molar as long as there is a good tooth on either side of the molar space.   Consult with your American Dental Association dentist to discuss the best options for you to fill your missing tooth space.
Yes, so long as you have a tooth behind and in front of the missing tooth if you are thinking about a permanent bridge.
As long as there is a tooth behind the space.

Yes, the bridge can be done on molar teeth. Decisions made toward the bridge have to be supported by good bone quality around the pillar teeth and lack of infection around root tips. Length of the supporting teeth roots will be another factor for the longevity of the bridge.
