If I have bridges, will I need dentures?

Not exactly.  Technically, bridges are fixed, partial, permanent dentures.  We will use bridges when there is a gap from a missing tooth.  In other words, we 'bridge' the space between two teeth.  Unlike dentures, bridges are not removeable, because we afix them to the neighboring teeth.  If you don't have natural teeth, you can't have bridges.
