PARTIAL — A removable appliance for replacing multiple missing teeth. It must be removed on a regular basis for cleaning.
BRIDGE — Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. It's made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth inbetween. It is fixed and non removable. This is a very solid and functional restoration. Bridges provide the full function of the missing teeth and can be a nice cosmetic fix as well.
