Dental Implants vs. Traditional Dental Bridge

Replacing multiple missing teeth is especially critical, because without enough teeth supporting the jaw bone, deterioration occurs and the facial structure can eventually collapse. Dr. Rice recommends replacing teeth with teeth implants in most cases, because they are long-lasting and serve all the supportive and cosmetic functions of real teeth.

Implants are now the preferred choice for replacing multiple teeth. Unlike bridges, they do not cause any damage to neighboring teeth. Bridges can lead to further tooth loss because they anchor onto neighboring teeth and cause strain. The bridge also does nothing to preserve the jaw bone and it continues to deteriorate without that stimulation.
