Prosthetic AppliancesWhile bridges and dentures are similar, they work differently. You may be a better candidate for one over the other. Bridges are meant to bridge the gap of missing teeth in between healthy teeth. Bridges are recommended for patients with fewer missing teeth. Dentures are recommended for patients that have several missing teeth.
Fixed permanently and removable prostheticsLike other types of prostheses, they can either be fixed permanently or removable; fixed prosthodontics and removable dentures are made in many variations. Permanently fixed dental prostheses use dental adhesive or screws, to attach to teeth or dental implants. Removal prostheses may use friction against parallel hard surfaces and undercuts of adjacent teeth or dental implants, suction using the mucous retention (with or without aid from denture adhesives), and by exploiting the surrounding muscles and anatomical contours of the jaw to passively hold in place.
