If you have missing teeth, you will not have issues finding a replacement, but rather which option is best for you. No matter which option you choose, they are all highly effective, safe, and efficient tools to accomplish your task. It’s important to discuss your options with your dentist at Henry B. Bowman, DDS to truly understand which option may work best for you and all your needs.

Dental bridges and dentures are two of the most widely used forms of tooth replacement. To help you get started, we have listed 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.
