Both dental implants and bridgework are popular solutions to restore missing teeth. Today, let's find out the differences between dental implants and dental crowns.
To identify the differences between implant placement and bridgework, let's analyze the following:
The procedure is much simpler, the dentist just grinds the teeth around the missing tooth area to form a small pillar. Then a row of bridges consisting of at least 3 crowns is secured on to those pillars, covering the tooth loss zone.
The bridgework method of dental restorations
Doctors will place an implant fixture inside in the missing tooth area, on the jaw bone, each fixture is equivalent to one root. When the implant fixtures are integrated into the jaw, a dental crown will be attached on to the fixture through the abutment, forming a complete tooth with both root and crown, which is the same as the structure of a real tooth.
Dental implant method
With bridgework, the treatment can only restore the crown on the gums to fit in the space of the missing tooth. The underlying alveolar bone remains empty due to the loss of the real tooth without compensation.
Dental Implant placement is the most complete and optimal dental restoration today, not only restoring the crown but also the root because the fixture is implanted directly into the jaw bone with a crown attached on top.
The bridgework method has some limitation, it can only recover 1 or a few missing teeth next to each other, not applicable to cases of severe teeth loss or complete teeth loss.
Dental restorations with dental bridge
Implant placement can be applied to all cases of missing teeth, ranging from one missing tooth to severe or complete teeth loss, from incisors to molars area can all be restored with implants.
Dental implants are the best dental restorative solution today
