DENTAL BRIDGE VS. DENTAL IMPLANT

DENTAL BRIDGE PROS:

DENTAL BRIDGE CONS:

  • shaving down of adjacent teeth

  • lose bone in the missing tooth area

  • jaw bone shrinkage

  • less esthetic than dental implants

  • harder to floss around and under the bridge

  • compromise the adjacent teeth

  • No shaving down of adjacent teeth

  • prevents jaw bone shrinkage

  • the initial cost is slightly more but long-term costs are less than a dental bridge

  • Brush and floss the dental implant tooth like a natural tooth
