Patients suffering from damaged or missing teeth are often faced with the decision of choosing between dental bridges or implants as a treatment procedure. Both treatments are effective in restoring functionality and jaw action. However, from the point of view of the average patient, it can still be quite confusing as to which is the best alternative for their specific case. We give you a quick rundown on the difference between dental bridge and dental implant procedures as well as a cost comparison.
What are dental bridges?
A dental bridge is basically non-removable prosthesis that is constructed and attached to remains of the patient’s natural teeth. The dental bridge has been the traditional dental remedy for replacement of missing teeth for several years before the dental implant was devised. It is a procedure that has been tweaked and tailored over time to suit patient needs. The aesthetics are great, with an outcome of having a full set of natural looking teeth.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants, unlike dental bridges, are a series of treatment procedures in which a dental technician will recreate your missing tooth. The core of this “fake tooth” is a titanium implant which will fit snugly into your jawbone’s tooth socket. This implant will bond with your jaw over time and become one, preventing any bone loss and restoring functionality of your mouth. You will be able to chew, smile, talk, and sing as you did before. Cost-wise, however, bridges are far more economical than the dental implant. Total fees on getting implants only begin where the high-end of a dental bridge procedure cost ends. In fact, dental implants can be several thousand dollars more expensive than the dental bridge.
With the above knowledge and advice on hand, you are much better equipped to make an informed choice between dental bridges or dental implants to replace your missing teeth. Dr. Baldwin and his team would be happy to offer a free consultation and give you a professional opinion about which option is best for your condition.
