Dental bridges hold your teeth in place when a tooth is missing. Since a missing tooth can cause a lot of problems and changes in your mouth, such as shifting your teeth, change in bite, and affect the appearance of your smile. Dental bridges can be an alternative to dentures as these are permanent partial dentures, very much like dental implants.
An overdenture is a denture that is secured to the mouth by dental implants. The overdenture, which is a removable treatment, rests directly on your gums and is placed over the implants. The procedure is generally done in two phases: surgical placement of the implants and fitting the denture over the implant.
