Understanding their Differences: Fixed vs. Removable Bridges

Understanding their Differences: Fixed vs. Removable BridgesWhen it comes down to making a decision between a fixed or removable bridge, the reality is that there is a balance between your preferences as the patient and what your dentist can provide. An evaluation of your remaining teeth, bone, gum tissue, as well as your need for lip, and cheek support will determine the right option for you. To help you make this decision, you can rely on the expertise of your dentist and/or a prosthodontist, a specialist in advanced crown, bridge, and denture work. They will explain why sometimes the aesthetic, hygienic, and long-term maintenance advantages of a removable bridge or “overdenture” that fits on top of implants is a better choice than a fixed bridge.
