To replace your lost teeth, you can opt for a dental bridgeor a dental implant. However, before choosing the best option, you will have to understand the benefits and drawback of each.

The biggest advantage of having dental implant is that they protect the other teeth as they do not exert any strain or pressure on the adjacent teeth. However, in case of dental bridges, the natural teeth have to provide the support. Hence, the adjacent natural teeth have to be intentionally reduced in size to accommodate the supporting parts of the crown.  When compared to dental bridge, implants require little maintenance and replacement as bridges need to be replaced every 10 to 15 years.

On the other hand, dental bridges also come with a number of advantages. One of the biggest advantage of placing dental bridge is that it takes simple dental procedure that involves no surgery. However, when dental implants have to be placed, a proper surgical procedure has to be followed. Therefore it is much easier and quicker to get dental bridges than dental implants. The dental bridge once placed, they are very stable and comfortable while eating and chewing the food.

Knowing the above advantages and drawbacks for both dental implants and bridges, it is also equally important to discuss with your dentist before choosing the best option- dental implant or dental bridge, for you!
