Dental Implants: A Superior Investment

As a practicing General Dentist, I often have the opportunity to help our customers decide how to replace missing teeth. Restoring that which was lost is a most rewarding process.

When it comes to permanent replacement options, it frequently comes down to either a traditional dental bridge or the latest option, a dental implant. At first glance the bridge and implant may seem very similar, but there are Three Key Differences that often set implants apart as the better option.

No Collateral Damage

Dental implants, unlike a bridge, do not require you to sacrifice any enamel from the teeth on either side of the new tooth being placed. This is possibly the strongest case to be made for choosing a dental implant. As you can see in the illustration, a traditional bridge requires the adjacent teeth to be ground down so that the bridge can fit over top of the two support teeth.

No Limitations

Dental implants can be placed anywhere in the mouth. With a bridge, as you can see, you must have two healthy support teeth on either side of the tooth you are looking to replace. In some cases, this isn’t a problem. But, what if the missing tooth is a back molar with nothing behind it? Or, what if the teeth on either side have been weakened from cavities or gum infection? Dental implants draw their support from the jaw bone itself and are strong and independent of neighboring teeth.

No More Decay

It is impossible for a dental implant to get a cavity. Almost all restorations a dentist can place —  a filling, a crown, a root canal, or a bridge — are supported by one or more of your teeth. If the support teeth of your bridge get a cavity, you can say goodbye to that bridge. Because of this fact, most bridges will have to be replaced after 10-15 years. Even though a dental implant may have a slightly higher price tag compared to the bridge, the fact that your implant is likely to last for the rest of your life makes it a cost saving option in the long run.

Our entire Better Dental team is eager and waiting to help bring a winning solution to you.
