Implant VS Bridge
Why are dental implants better than dental bridges?
Dental preparation: A bridge involves preparing the adjacent healthy teeth to support the crown on the missing tooth. With dental implants, there is no need to prepare the adjacent teeth, thus not being exposed to healthy teeth.
Durability and longevity: Weakness of the gum and bone structure under the bridge. While dental implants are made of sturdy metal, they are more solid and resistant to decay and gum problems.
Oral hygiene: Because dental bridges have at least three attached crowns, careful oral care is more difficult than natural teeth. Special floss for bridges (Super Floss) is needed to keep the area under the bridge clean. Whereas in the case of dental implants, you can brush regular dental floss around the implant just like natural teeth.
Aesthetics: Dental implants provide more satisfactory results as the size and shape of the final teeth can be customized, giving us a more natural appearance.
Maintaining bone structure:When you lose one of your teeth, you will lose bone and gums in the area of ??the missing tooth, which causes weakness in the jaw structure and increases skin wrinkles. Dental implants are the only treatment that can keep the jawbone from dissolving.
Eating: In dental implants, you can eat and chew anything you want, just like natural teeth.
Fractures: Teeth bearing bridges are exposed to higher rates of fracture compared to natural teeth, and the reason is that the roots of the bridge-bearing teeth bear the pressure of three or more teeth, which reduces the lifespan of the life span. Implants are the best solution for you if you lose your teeth.
