3 reasons why dental implant bridges are better than dentures

Tuesday, September 05, 2017 Chris Wood

When you have lost some of your teeth it can cause practical problems, such as making it harder to chew, as well as causing confidence issues, making you feel self-conscious when talking or smiling.

Dental implant bridges

It is for these reasons that many people like to find a solution, but with a variety of options, such as dental implant bridges and dentures available, it can be difficult deciding which one is best for you.

We have put together some reasons why dental implant bridges are better than dentures, which we hope will help!

They feel natural

If you need to have something to replace missing teeth, you want it to feel natural so that you can forget that it is there and resume eating, talking, and smiling like you always have done.

A dental implant bridge is far better than dentures for this reason, as dentures can move or dislodge, plus they often feel uncomfortable and take some time to get used to, which dental implant bridges don’t.

Easy to maintain

The way that dentures are designed means that they need replacing every five to seven years, which, once again, doesn’t help you to forget that you have missing teeth.

They also require some additional cleaning to natural teeth, so can be a bit of a nuisance if you’re looking for a simple solution.

A dental implant bridge could last for a lifetime if it is taken care of, and all you need to do is look after it like you do your natural teeth by brushing them twice a day and cleaning effectively between your teeth.

Prevent further deterioration

A dental implant bridge can prevent further deterioration of the jawbone as it is made from titanium, which is both strong and durable.

Unfortunately, dentures do not offer the same benefit, and will not protect your jawbone in the same way as a dental implant bridge.
