Now let’s see what is dental implant & bridge.

What is Dental Implant?

It’s a process to recreate the extracted or missing tooth. It starts by implanting the titanium in the tooth’s alveolus or pocket bone. Titanium is said to be good for bones as it forms a strong bond over a period of time, same as an original bond between jaw and tooth. This bond between jaw bone and tooth is important and essential else bone loss will happen. Dental implants come with the crown, which creates a replica of original tooth and works normally as original tooth.

What is Dental Bridge?

In this, a false teeth or tooth is placed between the gap of natural teeth. The adjacent tooth is prepped by removal of enamel to construct the bridge. But these make the neighbouring tooth more prone to bacterial infection, decay and plaque accumulations and again you may have to plan for root canals.

Cost Effectiveness: Dental Bridge Vs Dental Implant

Obviously, the dental bridge is more economical as compared to a dental implant. The cost of the dental implant is much higher than a bridge. But it is always advisable to compare the cost with value & durability. Although, a dental implant is expensive but said to be more durable & cost effective.

The dental bridge may be not so expensive but the longevity of this solution is not so good and they may fail over a period of time. They also create the future teething problems such as tooth decay, plaque formation, and infection.

As titanium is used in the dental implant which is a metal and strong in nature, they are resistant to gum issues & tooth decay.

It is always better to make due diligence prior to making the decision as teeth are an important part and very carefully we should take care of them. Besides medical help, we should also ensure the good oral hygiene to avoid such situations.
