Bridge or Implant: Which is Better?

We get this question a lot: Which restoration is best for my missing tooth?

For each patient, the answer is different. We have written about this very topic several times before, so rather than rehash that same reasoning once again, we thought we would point you back to some of that old material!

To begin with, we know that it’s tempting to not restore a missing tooth at all! You might wonder if it’s worth the money or the time to have it done. There are many physical and psychological reasons for you to restore a missing tooth. Read more about those reasons HERE.

Once you realize that a restoration really is necessary for your health, you will find that there are two types of restorations most offered. The most popular is the dental bridge. You can learn more about this restoration HERE.

While a bridge has benefits, it really isn’t the most reliable restoration on the market. For that type of security, you would be better off investing in a dental implant. A dental implant is the only restoration that truly looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth! Learn more about dental implants HERE.

So, when you are faced with this decision, consider all of your options! Remember, at the end of the day, you will want a restoration!
