Why patients might choose partial dentures over dental bridges

attractive asian middle aged smilingDr. Kenneth Egger is a dedicated professional in the Mount Pleasant, MI area who provider restorative dental procedures to assist patients after experiencing tooth loss or extraction. While there are many options available to patients to choose from for replacing one or more teeth, one popular option is that of the partial denture. But why might a patient choose a partial denture over a dental bridge? What makes a partial denture a reliable and affordable option for patients? Our team can help by making the following recommendations, providing you with the information you need to make an educated decision regarding the restoration of your smile.

What are partial dentures and dental bridges?

A partial denture is a restoration that is made to replace one or several teeth in the dental arch using false teeth fused to a metal and acrylic frame. The partial denture is an appliance that snaps into place with the existing teeth and places the false teeth right where they are needed in the spaces left behind. A dental bridge, on the other hand, replaces one or more teeth in a row. False teeth referred to by our team as pontics are fused together along with dental crowns on each side. The crowns are placed over the adjacent teeth for support, thus “bridging the gap” and replacing the missing teeth as needed. Both are options available to you at the office of Dr. Kenneth Egger.

Why might I choose a partial denture over a dental bridge?

  • Partial dentures are removable, making them easier to clean than dental bridges.
  • Partial dentures are less expensive than dental bridges.
  • Partial dentures can be used to replace more than one missing tooth.
  • Dental bridges require the removal of healthy teeth to support the bridge.
  • Partial dentures are less likely to cause complications than dental bridges.
