What is the difference between bridges and dentures?
Bridges are a replacement for 1-4 teeth that are bonded permanently in place. They replacement teeth are made from porcelain and fixed into place by crowning teeth on either side of the space missing teeth. They act like your teeth and allow good function and chewing.
In contrast, Dentures are used when a person is missing all or most all of their teeth. They are made from acrylic/plastic, look life-like and provide a good esthetic replacement for your teeth. Dentures are removable and do not provide as much functional chewing ability as a bridge, but when they are combined with implants deliver far better chewing ability.
