Dental Implants or Bridges - Venice, FL

Dental Implants or Bridges? What Is Best for You?

If you have one or more missing teeth, you may be considering all of the different options you have for your smile restoration. It is important to get your missing teeth replaced quickly so you do not experience even more oral health issues. The dentists at Waterside Dental are skilled at helping patients understand the placement of dental implants in our Venice office. We specialize in treating patients with tooth loss. The two most popular treatments for tooth loss are dental implants and dental bridges. Depending on your situation, budget and lifestyle, one of these solutions may work best for you. Here are the differences between these two treatments.

Investment

One of the first things that patients worry about with dental treatment is the cost. In most cases, dental implants will be a larger investment than a dental bridge; however, implants may prevent the need for additional dental treatment. We understand that budget is important and offer several financial plans that make tooth restoration affordable.

Longevity

Durability and longevity are additional things to consider before choosing your treatment. Implants are designed to be a permanent solution, offering top durability. Bridges may need to be replaced about every 10 years or so.

Appearance

We know how important the look of your smile is after getting your dental restoration. Dental implants mimic the look of natural teeth, and for many patients, it is impossible to tell they are not real. The staff at Waterside Dental can help you find a dental bridge that makes your smile look great as well.

Care

The last thing to think about before choosing is the typical oral care routine for each treatment. Dental implants do not require any additional special steps, other than your regular oral hygiene schedule. With a bridge, you will need to adapt to a new routine with more specialized oral cleaning.
