Dental Implants > Dental Bridges
Dental bridges represent out date and old fashioned dentistry. Bridges damage healthy teeth because a dentist must cut away healthy tooth structure to make room for a bridge. The bridge does nothing to preserve bone levels. Bridges are difficult to clean. Thus, fail frequently due to decay on the support teeth. Bridges are horrible for patients.
Dental implants represent the most advanced way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants do not damage adjacent teeth. The implants are anchored in the bone where they stimulate and protect bone levels. Because implants are made out of titanium and porcelain, dental implants can never get decay. Dental implants are designed to last a lift time. No other dental restoration will last as long as a dental implant.
