Dental Bridge vs Dental Implant

Attention Gastonia Replace Your Dental Bridge Before You Lose TeethIn this Gastonia Dental Group blog post, we’re going to talk about the tooth replacement option known as dental bridges.

While dental bridges have restored smiles for thousands of people, they are not problem free. Some people find it difficult to keep the small areas around the bridge clean. This is not surprising because it is hard to get toothbrush bristles or dental floss under the bridge.

Of course dangerous bacteria has no trouble moving in and taking over without you even knowing it. When the decay reaches the roots of the surrounding teeth, it is not only painful, you’re at risk of losing those teeth also.

That is one reason why a dental implant is superior to a dental bridge. Most people with missing teeth are great candidates for dental implants.

A dental implant is a titanium post screwed directly into the jaw bone, where it fuses. It is not attached to teeth like the dental bridges traditionally used in Gastonia. In a way, a dental implant is a more conservative tooth replacement because it leaves the adjacent teeth intact.

Dental implants do not have the same decay risk as the teeth that anchor dental bridges. Of course patients with dental implants need to brush and floss, but cleaning a dental implant is usually no more difficult than cleaning a normal tooth.

At Gastonia Dental Group, dental implants can replace one or more teeth providing strength, beauty, and natural function. We also offer general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today!
