Dental Implants Vs. a Bridge: Choosing for the Long Term

Dental Implants vs. a Dental BridgeThe most important thing for the patient to understand when choosing between dental implants and a bridge is that the latter option runs the risk of sacrificing two “good” teeth to save one “bad” tooth. The two teeth adjacent to the are used to support the bad tooth, but their long-term health may be compromised. In the case of a dental implant, the bad tooth is simply replaced. So a bridge might be viewed as a case of “one step forwards, two steps back. Is this trade-off worth making?  Patients must also factor in considerations of immediate costs versus further costs that might be incurred down the road. This can be confusing, so patients are encourage to contact San Francisco Dental Implant Center for a no-cost consultation.
