A Bridge vs Dental implants

When considering a bridge vs dental implants we must take the following factors into account: 
 

 

• Jaw bone resorbtion -Treatment with a dental implant vs bridges involves placing implants in areas where there are no teethand by so doing, the bone area is stimulated again and this prevents long term bone loss in that area. 

If a bridge that connects 2 teeth is used instead of adental implant, pressure is not applied on the jaw bone! Therefore the bone is not stimulated and begins to shrink away. Conclusion – dental implants preserve the underlying jawbone.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

There are many advantages to dental implants, including:

  • Improved appearance. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
  • Improved speech. With poor-fitting dentures, the teeth can slip within the mouth causing you to mumble or slur your words. Dental implants allow you to speak without the worry that your teeth might slip.

Why can’t teenagers get dental implants?

Dentist often get asked why children or young adults have to wait until the age of 19 or 20 before they get dental implants. The simple answer is that dental implants should not be placed in jaws that are actively growing. Unlike teeth, the periodontal ligament does not anchor dental implants. 

Implants are fused with bone through a process known as osseointegration. This means that the implant is in a fixed position within the bone. If a dental implant was placed in a growing jaw it would make it difficult to predict the position of the implant after growth is completed. Since dental implants cannot be moved like natural teeth, the implant could be the source of some form of malocclusion.
