are artificial teeth that are fixed to patients or dental implants with the help of dental cement or abutment screws. In dentistry, the artificial teeth are used to replace patient's missing teeth. When these fixed dentures are cemented on to patients natural teeth, they are called a 'dental bridge'.
Fixed dentures are made from different materials, but the most commonly used materials are acrylic, composite, ceramic, Zirconium or metal. Alloys containing Nickel chrome, chrome cobalt, titanium and precious metals are widely used to fabricate 'fixed dentures' in dentistry.
