An Expert Guide to Choosing Dental Bridges or Dental Implants

Why suffer in shame with missing teeth when you can restore your smile with dental bridges or dental implants. See which dental restoration will help you smile again.

The Good and the Bad of Dental Bridges

Many people choose dental bridges to replace teeth they have lost over time. Dental bridges are created by connecting at least three crowns together to form a “bridge,” which is then cemented into the mouth to fill in the area of missing teeth. They are a permanent solution. Dental bridges offer many benefits, but also come with some concerns.

Advantages

  • Ideal for people with receded gums and bone
  • Best for people with large fillings and those in need of dental crowns or caps down the line
  • Preferred when the tooth or teeth have been missing for a very long time
  • Lower cost than dental implants

Disadvantages

  • Not as natural-looking as dental implants
  • Since the surrounding teeth must be prepared for bridge placement, some of the natural healthy structure of these teeth will need to be removed
  • Less durable than dental implants and may require more repair, which can be costly even with an affordable dentist
  • Only lasts up to 10 years before requiring costly replacement

The Strengths and Shortcomings of Dental Implants

The other popular option for replacing teeth is dental implants. These are small metal posts that dentists surgically embed in the jawbone to attach to replacement teeth. Since they are positioned in the jaw, they offer maximum stability, strength, and long-term security. While dental implants have positive attributes, they also present some problems.

Advantages

  • Stronger and more durable than dental bridges
  • Complete stability and security, since they are placed deep in the jaw
  • Offers the most natural and aesthetically-pleasing appearance
  • Preserves the natural amount of bone
  • Simple care and cleaning, simply requiring the same regular oral hygiene routine and professional dental care from an affordable dentist as natural teeth

Disadvantages

  • Costs more than dental bridges, but their durability makes them more cost-effective over time because they save you the cost of repair and replacement
  • While initially more expensive than dental bridges, an affordable dentist can keep costs to a minimum.
