Fixed and Removable Dentures

What's the difference between all of these “dentures”?

When you think of dentures, you may picture a full set of upper and lower teeth, complete with pink gums… sitting in a glass full of water on the bedside table. But did you know that the word “dentures” is actually used to refer to several different types of prosthetic teeth? For example, there’s the fixed partial denture (commonly called a “bridge”), the removable partial denture, and the removable full denture (the one in the glass). It’s also possible to have a full set of dentures which are securely fixed in the mouth.
