Dental Bridge vs Dental Implant

December 28, 2018

Attention Richardson Replace Your Dental Bridge Before You Lose TeethWhile dental bridges have restored smiles for thousands of people, they are not problem free. A lot of people are instead opting for dental implants, available from The Richardson Dentist.

Many people with dental bridges find it impossible to keep the small areas around the bridge clean. This is not surprising because it is hard to get toothbrush bristles or dental floss under the bridge.

Of course harmful bacteria has no trouble moving in and taking over without the Richardson dental patient even knowing it. When the decay reaches the roots of the surrounding teeth, it is not only painful, the person is at risk of losing those teeth also.

That is one reason why a dental implant is superior to a dental bridge. Most people with missing teeth are great candidates for dental implants.

A dental implant looks just like the tooth restoration on a high-quality dental bridge, but the important part is what you don’t see.

A dental implant is screwed directly into the jaw bone. It is not attached to teeth like dental bridges traditionally used. In a way, a dental implant is a more conservative tooth replacement because it leaves the adjacent teeth intact. The bone and gum tissue mesh permanently with the titanium post that serves as the replacement tooth root.

Dental implants do not have the same decay risk as the teeth that anchor dental bridges. Of course patients with dental implants need to brush and floss, but cleaning a dental implant is usually no more difficult than cleaning a normal tooth.

Dental implants have a far better track record in Texas than dental bridges. With proper care, a dental implant can last a lifetime for smile-smart North Dallas dental patients.
