    Missing teeth is a part of our journey. But it is important to replace those missing teeth.

    Failing to do so will result in following issues :

    1. Movement of neighboring teeth into the missing tooth space

    2. Chewing problems

    3. Uneven chewing forces

    4. Low self confidence if missing tooth is a front tooth

     

    Missing tooth/ teeth can be replaced with removable prosthetic replacement or fixed prosthetic replacement.

     

    Dental Bridge or Dental Implants? What is the difference?

     

    Dental Bridge

    Dental bridge is used to replace missing tooth or multiple teeth. Dental bridge is a fixed prosthetic option. Dental bridge takes support of adjacent teeth to replace the missing tooth/teeth. The durability of the dental bridge is dependent on the adjacent teeth.

    One may need root canal treatment of the adjacent teeth as they need to be adjusted.

     

     

    Dental Implants

    Dental implants are the fixed prosthetic replacement options to replace one or few missing teeth. As the dental implants take support from the underlying bone, they are independent of adjacent teeth. Dental implants osseointegrate in the underlying bone making them the most natural looking fixed dental prosthesis.

     

    What should you go for? Dental Bridge or Dental Implant?

    The decision between dental bridge or dental implant is dependent on the health of the underlying bone, oral hygiene and the patient’s choice.
