Are dental implants better than dental bridges?
Both dental implants and dental bridges address the problem of missing teeth, but they function very differently from each other. A dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that is anchored in your jaw bone. A bridge simply fills the space left by a missing tooth and is not a real replacement tooth.
Dental bridges have been used for many years with great success, and Dr. Moore has extensive experience with creating bridges that are functional and blend perfectly with surrounding teeth.
For many patients, dental implants are more convenient and effective than bridges. Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, and dental implants are not always the most appropriate solution.
But dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution and look and work most like a natural tooth. In addition, dental implants do not require adjacent teeth to be altered, which is important in helping to preserve your tooth’s natural structure.
The professional team at Moore Family Dentistry is very experienced in both types of restorations and are proud of the natural-looking, durable and functional results they can provide for our patients.
