Dental Implant vs. Bridge

When should you have a dental implant and when should you have a dental bridge?

Advantages of a dental bridge:

  • Faster
  • Almost and dentist can do it

Advantages of a dental implant:

  • The adjacent teeth don’t have to be ground down
  • Generally more comfortable
  • Maintenance is less complicated
  • If there is later a problem with any of the teeth involved in the bridge, you usually have to get a complete new bridge, which involves at least three teeth. With a dental implant you have to treat only the tooth with the problem.
  • A bridge stresses adjacent teeth.
