To place a conventional bridge, the teeth adjacent to the site need to be reduced to hold crowns, which then support the missing tooth. This may be OK if the teeth are already broken down, but if the teeth are healthy—why destroy healthy teeth?
In this case, the patient from Wheaton also wanted to keep the space between the teeth—impossible to achieve with a conventional bridge.
