Dental Bridges are a conventional method of replacing missing teeth. Dental bridges can be generally categorized into three categories:
Removable Bridges can replace a single tooth or it can replace multiple numbers of missing teeth in an arch. The removable bridges are also referred to as Removable Partial Dentures. All removable bridges are designed to take advantage of the other teeth in the same arch as well as the supporting tissue to gain its retention.
For example a common removable bridges is a single tooth removable retainer that is commonly referred to as a “ Flipper”. Removable bridges come in all shapes and sizes but they are typically made of an acrylic, metal or a combination of the two.
The biggest advantage of a removable dental bridge compared to other forms of teeth replacement therapies is the cost.
There are more disadvantages associated with a removable dental bridge that the cost being an advantage. Thus, removable dental bridges have lost its popularity over time as a permanent form of teeth replacement.

Before dental implants became popular and more predictable form of a tooth replacement, fixed dental bridges were number one choice among those qualified patients who did not want to have something removable in their mouths. A fixed bridge uses the remaining teeth in an arch as a foundation or an abutment. Generally the adjacent teeth in an arch are trimmed down and a fixed bridge is permanently cemented on the prepared teeth.
The biggest advantage offered by a fixed dental bridge compared to a removable bridge is the fact that the bridge does not move and is permanently fixed. This will allow patients the extra comfort and peace of mind that their bridge does not come out or fall out during chewing or speaking. There are also other advantages:
A hybrid dental bridge is a combination of a fixed dental bridge and also a removable one. These types of prosthesis became a popular method of teeth replacement in the recent years due to higher success rates achieved with dental implants. These dental bridges can only be fabricated over dental implants where they are screwed in place to the dental implant body. The screws then are tightened, hence creating a fixed dental bridge and can be easily removed by unscrewing the screws by a qualified dentist. The hybrid dental bridges are the optimum teeth replacement where patient requires dental implants.
