Implants vs Dentures or Bridges
Dental Implants Or Bridges In Fresno?
In the past if you were missing multiple teeth, the best option available was that of a dental bridge used to fill in the gap and get your smile back. These dental bridges have been a wonderful solution for patients looking to help their smile and their oral health, however they are not a permanent solution.
Thanks to dental implants, we can now permanently replace single or multiple missing teeth. A traditional dental bridge is anchored on either side by tooth crowns, and can put pressure on surrounding teeth which can require additional maintenance and adjusting over time. With dental implants we can place a dental bridge at our Fresno dentist office without requiring the support of surrounding teeth that functions permanently in an effective and great looking way.
Implant dentures vs. traditional dentures
Traditional dentures have long been the go-to treatment method for those looking to replace missing teeth, however they have a number of potential drawbacks. Some of these potential drawbacks include:
- Decreased ability to speak well
Dental implants and implant dentures are wonderful dental technologies that have allowed patients to permanently replace missing teeth. Our team is thrilled to be able to offer implant technology to our patients and have loved seeing the smile transformations they can provide.
