Are dental implants better than dental bridges?
Major improvements have been made in both dental implants and dental bridges over the years. From the latest techniques, to the best materials for the job, your tooth replacement options have never been better.
Dental bridges are a common and effective tooth replacement option in many cases. Dr. Jeffrey Robertson has years of experience making his patients extremely satisfied by creating beautiful and functional dental bridges.
In many cases, dental implants provide a more effective and convenient option for our patients. While a dental implant is not a good solution for every case, they do provide the tooth replacement option most like your natural teeth. Dental implants do not require the adjacent teeth to be prepped, so they help preserve the structure of your other natural teeth.
Additionally, dental implants help with bone retention. Because your teeth are rooted in your bone, when you lose a tooth your bone may begin to melt away. This can cause complications for your adjacent and opposing teeth. An implant is surgically placed in your bone and can help prevent bone loss.
