How to Decide between Dental Bridges and Dental Implants to Replace Lost Teeth

Are you missing out on life because you’re missing teeth? See how dental bridges and dental implants can give you a better smile.

Dental Implants

Both dentists and patients agree that dental implants are an outstanding way to replace any teeth you are missing. They are made of tiny titanium posts that a dentist surgically embeds directly into your jaw for maximum stability. Dental implants offer a number of positives and problems, which you need to understand to see if this option is right for you:

Positives

  • Permanent option
  • No need to remove any natural tooth structure from surrounding teeth for placement
  • Requires barely any maintenance
  • Can last 25 years or more
  • Very easy to maintain
  • Simple care and cleaning process, requiring the same brushing, flossing, and regular professional dental care as natural teeth
  • Easy to brush and floss
  • Most natural look
  • Eases speaking and eating
  • Extremely comfortable
  • Very cost-effective long-term because no replacement is needed

Problems

  • Surgery required for placement
  • More costly than other options, but finding an affordable dentist can ease the total expense

Dental Bridges

Another effective tooth replacement option is a set of dental bridges. While both implants and bridges replace teeth, they do it very differently. Dental bridges consist of a frame with dental crowns on each side and replacement teeth in the middle. The dental crowns get attached to the surrounding teeth to secure the frame with the replacement teeth. Learn the advantages and disadvantages of this replacement option:

Advantages

  • Recommended for people with significant jaw bone damage or loss
  • Simple and painless process
  • Helps maintain proper facial shape and structure
  • Stops existing teeth from shifting into the spaces left by missing teeth
  • Only calls for two to three visits to an affordable dentist
  • No surgery needed for this simple dental procedure

Disadvantages

  • Temporary solution
  • Relies on the natural teeth for support
  • Demands removing a great deal of natural tooth structure from the nearby teeth to accommodate the dental crowns
  • May slip or shift when talking and chewing
  • Must be replaced every 10 to 15 years

Now that you fully understand the differences between these two dental options, talk to your dentist to see which replacement is right for your needs.
