Dentures or Dental Bridges? Which are best for you?

Dentures are a very common implement for replacing lost teeth, but are they better than dental bridges? Which method is right for you? Both methods replace lost teeth, but there are certain aspects of each that provide a better solution, depending on your particular needs. Dentures or Dental Bridges Whenever there is a gap in your teeth, even if it’s from just one tooth, the other teeth will shift in an attempt to fill that gap. This can lead to an uneven bite, which can cause pain and make chewing or speaking uncomfortable.
