The Difference Between Dental Bridges & Implants

December 30, 2022 12:47 pm

Missing teeth can throw a wrench in everyday activities such as confidently interacting with others, eating, and speaking. At Vero Dental, we understand that finding a tooth replacement solution that best suits your smile needs, lifestyle, and budget is important. Luckily, there are many restorative treatments to help patients fill the gaps in their smile. Two common tooth replacement options are dental bridges and dental implants.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges can replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth in a row. This versatile dental prosthetic is designed to mimic the natural appearance of teeth. A traditional dental bridge is made up of two crowns on both ends with an artificial tooth sandwiched in between. The crowns attach the bridge on each end to your natural teeth. Bridges can also be connected to dental implants.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small titanium rods that are surgically placed directly into the jawbone. These bases provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth to attach onto. Once the implants fully fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, a dental crown, bridge, or denture can be put into place on top. Implants are the only tooth replacement method that stimulates the jawbone to help prevent bone degeneration and changes in your facial structure.
