Benefits of Dental Implants vs. Bridges

Why Dental Implants are better than bridges.

For so many of us, missing some teeth leads to the loss of an attractive smile, embarrassing moments when dentures become loose, pain and sore gums at times and often difficulty with eating.

Problems with Bridges

Common replacement options for teeth that have been lost include: bridges, easy to remove part dentures, or full sized dentures. All of these treatment possibilities have their drawbacks and often create additional problems.

Installing bridges normally involves removing enamel from adjoining teeth which are healthy so as to provide a firm base for supporting the new teeth. These altered teeth may fail in time which could mean more dental problems and more cost.

As well as the disadvantages of bridges, dentures also have disadvantages, such as speech difficulties and eating problems. They can unexpectedly dislodge and fall out, causing embarrassing moments.

Dental implants are a great solution

Dental implants bring dental care a step forward.

  • Replace one or more teeth
  • Fixed in a particular place and are immovable
  • Involve no slipping or clicking, as with dentures
  • Are as close as you can get to real teeth
  • Most people find that eating is more natural
  • 95%+ rate of success
  • Implants have no ill effect on healthy teeth.

Dental implants are a revolution in dental care because when they are fixed in place they fuse with the jaw bone. This provides stability and prevents loss of bone and atrophy (misshapen facial appearance) that normally occurs due to missing teeth.

Dental implants offer a lifetime solution to dental problems, while traditional bridges often have to be replaced around five to eight years of use.

Dental implants will stimulate the bone, which will protect it from atrophying, and help in the preservation of your natural facial features.
