What are the benefits of a fixed dental bridge versus a removable partial denture?

The loss of teeth, either from extraction, disease, infection, or decay, can significantly impact the smile in various ways. Not only does it affect the appearance, but it also affects the health and functionality of the smile. When patients experience manual extraction or loss of a natural tooth, they must seek replacement options as soon as possible to keep the adjacent teeth from shifting out of place. 

Dental Bridge in Charleston SC area

Dr. Andrew Greenberg and his team at Mouth Carolina Dentistry may recommend a fixed dental bridge. While patients can also choose alternative treatments such as removable partial dentures, knowing your options and the advantages of each is the best way to make a knowledgeable decision. Our Charleston, South Carolina, area team can advise you as to whether or not you are a good candidate for dental bridges or partial dentures to replace a single tooth.

What is a dental bridge?

A quality dental bridge from Mouth Carolina Dentistry is a tooth replacement option that uses a false tooth fused to dental crowns. The bridge structure is then bonded over the top of the adjacent teeth for support, allowing the false tooth to rest on the gumline and restore the smile.

What are the advantages of a fixed dental bridge over a removable partial denture?

Fixed bridges are:

  • Permanently attached to the dental arch
  • Solid and reliable
  • Affordable, especially for patients with dental insurance
  • Made to match the patient’s existing teeth in the smile
  • Long-lasting with proper care
  • Easy to care for
