Dental bridges are a gap management option that are used to replace the natural bridge in your mouth which will then be fully loaded with your new teeth. Dental implants are used to secure restorations in place (such as bridges, crowns, overdentures etc), which will help stabilise your mouth and help promote healthy bone growth.
In cases where you have lost multiple teeth in the same area of your mouth a dental bridge may be an ideal treatment for you. If you have lost multiple teeth but they are in different area of the mouth (e.g. not next to each other), then you may require individual crown replacements.
Dental implants are a modern and exciting way at managing a gap in your mouth. These are titanium pegs that will act as the new roots of the replacement teeth. They are placed in the jawbone and will add security and stability in your mouth. The restorations will then be fitted on top of the implants.
If you are eligible to have dental implants then it might be a viable option to have an implant retained bridge. This is a fixed option which will securely hold your new teeth securely in place. One of the main benefits associated with having implants is the fact it can help promote healthy bone growth in the jaw and stop the affects of bone resorption (when the bone fades away due to loss of teeth).
