Dental bridges and dentures both offer safe, effective, efficient, and quality replacements for missing teeth. Both can bring you the peace of mind of filling out your jawline as it was intended for maximum efficiency in the all of the tasks that we ask of our mouths. Although dental bridges are a more permanent solution, whereas dentures are removable, they both have many advantages. Listed below are a few benefits of each:

Advantages of Bridges:

– Bridges can greatly improve your smile’s aesthetics.

– Bridges are permanent fixtures in your mouth that can vastly improve your speech and chewing abilities compared to missing teeth and even more so than dentures. They are not removable like dentures, which can tend to have the problem of falling out.

– Bridges can prevent teeth from moving along the jawline where missing teeth once were. Bridges also can prevent further misalignments caused by missing teeth.

Advantages of Dentures:

– Dentures can greatly improve your smile’s aesthetics.

– Dentures are removable fixtures that can improve your speech and chewing abilities compared to missing teeth. Since they are removable, they do not need to attach to other natural teeth as dental bridges do.

– Dentures can prevent teeth from moving along the jawline where missing teeth once were. Dentures also can prevent further misalignments caused by missing teeth.
