Dental Implants are Superior to Bridges
Dental bridges are an outdated treatment option for restoring a missing tooth. They have many disadvantages.
- damage adjacent teeth
- fuse teeth together
- do nothing to preserve bone
- are difficult to clean
- antiquated technology.
Dental implants offer advanced solutions to missing teeth.
- do not damage adjacent teeth
- are independent of the other teeth
- preserve bone levels
- easy to clean
- modern technology.
This is an implant case Dr. Nugent completed. The patient had an old fashioned bridge. Because the bridge is difficult to clean she got decay on the front tooth that lead to a painful infection.
The GREEN shows the decay, MAGENTA the infection and YELLOW the bone loss that occurred because bridges do not preserve bone levels.
Dr. Nugent cut the bridge off. Two dental implants were place. Patient can brush and floss her implants just like natural teeth. The implants provide tremendous chewing forces so the patient can eat what ever she wants. The dental implants will never get decay and will never need a root canal. Dental implants offer the best long term teeth replacement option.
When a bridge fails it is disastrous dentally and financially. The patient has already paid for the bridge. Now that the bridge has failed the patient must pay for more treatment. Dr. Nugent has replaced teeth on his parents and his wife’s parents. All of them received dental implants because it is the best treatment possible for missing teeth. Unfortunately, many dentists have not kept up with education and still think bridges are good treatment options.
