Fixed bridge vs. removable partial denture

User Level:
Posted by: teatee  (10 years ago)
Hi all!

I had two front lower teeth extracted because they were badly damaged when I had an accident. The dentist could no longer save them and I had no choice but to have them removed.

The dentist suggested implant to replace the missing teeth but I find them very expensive. Fixed bridge and removable partial have been suggested as alternative options.

As I weigh my dental options, I would like to hear from those who have experience with either a fixed bridge or a removable partial denture. How satisfied are you with it?

I look forward to any information you can give me. Thanks a lot!

I got fixed bridge. It is costly but it is more convenient to use compared to the removable partial. It will last long and it will not limit you from eating.

The fixed bridge will look like your natural teeth. Also, unlike the removable partial, you do not have to remove it when it's time to clean it.
