Dental bridges are tooth restorations that can be used to replace missing teeth.However the procedure is not appropriate for all patients with missing teeth.Bridges can be used to replace two or more teeth.
Dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.People of any age can get it done even if bone is resorbed ,and implants can be used to replace even single teeth.
Dental Implants vs. Dental Bridges
- ESTHETICS: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth,they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridge work and dentures.
- TOOTH SAVINGS: Dental implants do not sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighbouring teeth are not altered to support the implant.More of your teeth are left untouched,a significant long term benefit to your oral health.
- CONFIDENCE: Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence.They are secure and offer freedom from the clicking and wobblings of partial dentures.No worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
- RELIABLE: The success rate of dental implant is highly predictable.They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
