Prosthetic Dentistry


35 years ago, before modern implant dentistry, there were two options to replace missing teeth: One option was bridgework; the other was a removable bridge. This partial “denture” with metal frame and plastic teeth could be worn during the day to restore your smile and removed at night. The removable bridge, although done less frequently, is still a good alternative for many patients today. We sometimes prescribe removable bridges in the event of tooth removal to temporarily fill in the space of a missing tooth.
