Dental Bridge vs Implant
The choice between a dental bridge vs implant can be stressful because missing teeth can be one of the most devastating issues faced by a dental patient. Gaps in a smile are embarrassing, and the loss of a tooth can lead to further degradation of surrounding tissue and more tooth loss if not treated. Lost teeth also make it harder to chew, talk, and otherwise enjoy life to its fullest.
If you are missing one or more teeth, you have several options for restoration. Two of the cosmetic solutions we commonly offer at Sanchez Dental are dental bridges and implants.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE? DENTAL BRIDGE VS IMPLANT
Both implants and bridges are prosthetic devices that take the place of your natural teeth. Implants, as the name suggests, are implanted into your gum tissue and anchored to the jaw bone. Once healed, they are able to function just like your regular teeth.
Bridges sit on the surface of your gums and are anchored in place by the surrounding teeth. A common bridge involves three teeth; crowns are placed over the teeth on either side of the gap, holding up a false tooth in the center.
