One Response to “What are the Pros and Cons of having a fixed bridge and dental implant?”

    hi
    When considering a dental implant vs bridges we must take the following considerations into account:

    • Jaw bone resorbtion – Treatment with a dental implant involves placing implants in areas where there are no teethand by so doing, the bone area is stimulated again and this prevents long term bone loss in that area.

    If a bridge that connects 2 teeth is used instead of a dental implant, pressure is not applied on the jaw bone! Therefore the bone is not stimulated and begins to shrink away. Conclusion – dental implants preserve the underlying jawbone.

    More considerations:
    •Oral health
    • Durability
    Oral hygiene
    Esthetics
    • Treatment plan flexibility
    • Price
