Missing a tooth or teeth is like missing a part of yourself. Yes, you can still go about your daily life, but you’re always aware that something just isn’t quite right, especially when you eat, drink or talk — which is all day. Patients looking to remedy this problem can choose between a dental bridge and a dental implant. Each has unique considerations, so it’s important to understand the differences before making a choice.

Dental Bridge
A dental bridge literally bridges the gap where your missing tooth is. Your new artificial tooth (or teeth) sits between two crowns, which are placed on the existing teeth on either side of the gap.

Dental Implants
An implant is a single tooth specially designed to fit the space created by the missing tooth. It is placed directly into the jaw bone making it incredibly strong and long-lasting.

Look and Feel
One consideration for patients to think about is how both options look and feel. A dental implant will look and feel more natural because it is crafted specifically for the space left by the missing tooth, is implanted individually, and blends in with the surrounding teeth.

A dental bridge might not feel as natural because the artificial tooth is not connected to the jawbone the same way an implant is.

Both the dental bridge and dental implant provide patients an ideal option to restore their smile and feel whole again.

If you have further doubts about choosing between dental implants and dental bridges, contact our dentists for proper assessment and get complete dental treatment done.
