Implants vs. Bridges: Know The Facts

Attention Grapevine Replace Your Dental Bridge Before You Lose TeethIn this post from Mason Dental in Grapevine, we’ll look at a traditional tooth replacement option, dental bridges, and see how they stack up against dental implants.

While dental bridges have restored smiles for generations of people, they are not without drawbacks.

Many people with dental bridges find it difficult to keep them clean, In particular, the small areas around and under the bridge. This is not surprising, because it isn’t easy to get toothbrush bristlesm or even dental floss, under the bridge.

Of course, dangerous bacteria has no trouble moving in and taking over without you even knowing it. This begins a decay process. When it reaches the roots of the surrounding teeth, it is not only painful, you are in danger of losing those teeth.

That is one reason why dental implant are superior to a dental bridge.

A dental implant is a titanium post screwed directly into the jaw bone. Unlike a bridge, it is not attached to the adjacent teeth. The post replaces the tooth root and supports an artificial tooth.

Dental implants do not have the same decay risk as the teeth that anchor dental bridges. You still need to brush and floss, of course. But cleaning a dental implant is not much different than cleaning a normal tooth.
