What are the benefits and drawbacks of a traditional bridge?


While a traditional bridge looks good and improves oral function, it does not have the full benefits of dental implants. For instance:


  • To place a bridge, healthy teeth must be altere
  • This can pose a risk to the attachment teeth
  • A bridge does not stop bone loss
  • A bridge may last only five to ten years
  • Some bridges contain metal, thus detracting from your natural smile



What is the difference between fixed bridges and overdentures?


A fixed bridge and overdentures are attached to dental implants. Fixed bridges are stationery and cannot be removed, whereas overdentures are removable.
