Permanent Fixed Bridge

A Permanent Bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. A Bridge will:

  • Keep teeth from drifting into the space created from a missing tooth
  • Help preserve normal function and normal bite for the jaw joint

Removable Bridge

A Permanent Bridge is usually anchored to the teeth on both sides of the space from the missing tooth. This gives the bridge strong support. Brushing is no different than brushing natural teeth, but special flossing instructions are given to keep the bridge and surrounding tissue healthy.

A Permanent Bridge is permanently bonded in place, unlike a Partial Denture (sometimes called a "Removable Bridge"), which is removable.
