Trying to decide between Implants and Bridges?
Implants have a longer prognosis than bridges:
Bridges typically have to be replaced every 10yrs, at the expense of the losing more bone structure on the teeth that were holding the bridge to begin with.
Number one reason for bridge failure is flossing:
Bridges fail from decay due to the irritation of flossing under it, whereas implants tend to be managed better since the act of flossing is done in the traditional manner.
Bridges cause us to remove tooth structure, not strengthen it:
With bridges we have to remove tooth structure from the teeth adjacent to the space, which is structuer I can never give back. The ultimate goal in dentistry is to not have to remove tooth structure because it further compromises the teeth, and shortens their life span.
Implants replace missing teeth, and bridges compromise the teeth around them:
Why not replace the missing tooth with an implant, instead of forever compromising the other teeth. Implants are the closest thing man made to replace what God’s given us.
Bridges put at risk further damage to existing teeth:
Typically over time a root canal will be needed because removal of more tooth structure due to decay will lead to more insult of the nerve. You could also lose one of the teeth, which would lead to needing a longer, more expense bridge, which increases the cost.
Meanwhile, a quality implant would have required no changes, and no additional costs.
Comparing Costs | Bridges vs Implants
Out of pocket with insurance = $1,300
(most of time not covered by Insurance) = $3,000
Lifetime Usage of a Bridge:
Generally a bridge is replaced several times in a life time: 3 x $1,300 = $3,900.

Prevent Jawbone Loss
Dental implants integrate with the bone, providing a stimulus that keeps the jawbone from deteriorating. This helps avoid a sunken-in appearance around the mouth that can make you look older.

If you have an issue with a single damaged or missing tooth, we can easily fix that with a single dental implant.
Rest assured, your new tooth will look and function like your other natural teeth.
Single Crown with an Implant – To replace just one tooth, you can give your replacement tooth a strong foundation with a single implant.
Bridges or Multiple Implants
Occasionally a patient is missing more than one tooth, but still has healthy gums and surrounding teeth. In this case, a multiple implant can be the best solution.
Fixtures are implanted and the crown is attached, leaving the natural teeth around them intact.

Common Questions about Dental Implants
What are dental implants?
Modern dental implants function as artificial roots for replacement teeth. Implants are anchored directly in your jawbone, like the roots of natural teeth are. Your jaw bonds to the implants to keep them securely in place. This provides a stable support system for your replacement teeth. By stimulating your jawbone, implants also reduce your risk of bone loss, which is common after someone loses teeth.
Do dental implants hurt?
There may be some discomfort during the minor surgical procedure of receiving implants. However, you shouldn’t feel anything with local anesthesia. Once your implants are in place, you likely won’t be able to feel them at all! Replacement teeth attached to implants are also less likely to experience uncomfortable damage such as cracks or breaks.
Can dental implants be removed?
While implants can technically be removed, there would most likely never be a reason to remove them. The dental implants themselves fuse with your jawbone and become part of it, lasting for decades or potentially the rest of your life. The artificial teeth we attach to them usually last for at least five to seven years, after which they may need replacement.
