A removable bridge is an excellent alternative when implants or a fixed bridge is not the right solution. The adjacent teeth are used to support a bridge that is removable. A removable bridge facilitates cleaning of the remaining teeth. Removable bridges can replace lost bone and gum tissue contours, thereby supporting areas of the face and jawbone that may have a caved-in appearance. Implants are occasionally used as support for removable bridges when indicated.
At the first visit, an impression is taken with very little alteration to the remaining teeth. The removable bridge framework is custom-made by a laboratory. This framework and teeth are tried in for a custom preview of the final result. Once you are satisfied with the appearance of the removable bridge, then it is sent back to the laboratory for final completion.
