Dental Bridge vs Dental Implant

Attention Dallas Replace Your Dental Bridge Before You Lose TeethIn this post from Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, we’re going to discuss a common tooth replacement option, dental bridges.

While dental bridges have restored smiles for countless, they are not problem-free. Many people with bridges find it impossible to keep them entirely clean, in particular the small areas around the bridge. It can be hard to get toothbrush bristles or dental floss under the bridge.

Harmful bacteria has no trouble moving in and starting decay without you even knowing it. When decay reaches the roots of the surrounding teeth, it is not only painful, the person is at risk of losing those teeth.

That is one reason why a dental implant is superior to a dental bridge. A dental implant is a titanium post inserted into the jaw, where it supports an artificial tooth. The bone and gum tissue fuse with the titanium post, which serves as a replacement tooth root.

Dental implants have a far better track record than dental bridges. Their success rate is higher than ninety percent, and with proper care, can last a lifetime.

At Dr. Howard Kessner General, Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry in Dallas, dental implants can replace one or more teeth providing strength, beauty, and natural function.  They can also serve as anchors for full or partial dentures. Call our office to schedule an appointment with us today!
