5 Reasons Why Dental Implant Bridges Are Better Than Dentures

If you find yourself in the position of a poor dental diagnosis or find that unfortunately you have teeth missing whether it be through an accident or incident or gum disease if the teeth you have missing are in a row you may have been offered by your general dentist the option of having a conventional removable appliance in the form of a denture. For a lot of patients this is a great way to replace those missing teeth and it is fairly inexpensive initially, however to many patients this will make them cringe with fear and have them running for the hills. Fear not for here at the Anacapa Dental Art Institute we are delighted to inform all of those patients that there is an alternative in the form of a fixed dental implant bridges.

So What is a Dental Implant Bridge?

A dental implant bridge is very similar to a conventional bridge in that all the teeth on the bridge are in a row and they look and act like your natural teeth however the difference with a dental implant bridge is that they are secured on to dental titanium implants (either screw retained or cemented) and they fill the space whether you are missing three teeth or more and will not impact on any of your other natural teeth.

At the Anacapa Dental Art Institute we chat to patients everyday who have been using dentures and the most complaints they have regarding their dentures is that they take away their confidence and make the patient feel old. Some patients have been afraid to go out and socialise because of their dentures because they will get embarrassed if they eat something or when they are merely talking that the denture will become loose and fall out.

Please find below the Anacapa Dental 5 Top Reasons why we think Dental Implant Bridges are a Much Better Option than Dentures especially in the long term.

#1 Stability, Security, Strength

Because a dental implant bridge is supported by titanium dental implants (titanium screws which go below your gum line and act like an anchor for the rest of the teeth to be fitted on) once the implant bridge is fitted into place it will make the dental implant bridge so much stronger and stable so that unlike a denture it will not move around in your mouth. You have the security in knowing because the dental implant bridge is so secure it will not fall out of your mouth as the denture may do and can do at the most inconvenient of times. A dental implant bridge can only be removed by a dentist.

#2 Longevity

As time goes by you may experience having some changes in your mouth however unlike a denture which over time may become mobile (move around in your mouth) a dental implant bridge will remain secure and can last you a life time as long as it is well maintained.

#3 Economical

If a patient has been using a denture for a long period of time they may find that they get some bone loss which will change the shape of their gums which will lead to the movement of a denture and this may lead eventually to the only solution that the patient will require dental implants in order for them to have their smile and chewing ability back again therefore going for a dental implant bridge to replace those missing teeth initially may seem like the expensive option however in the long run you may find that it is not only financially the best option but will also entail less treatment and will not impact on the rest of the patient’s mouth.

#4 Functionality

With dental implant bridges you can be safe in the knowledge that no foods are off limit, that the dental implant bridges will not break or fall out when eating say for example a nice crunchy apple. Dental implant bridges can give you back not only your chewing ability but unlike dentures which can impact on your speech dental implant bridges can give you back your confidence so you will never say No to those social occasions again.

#5 Reliability

Here at the Anacapa Dental Art Institute we have over 98% success rate with our dental implant bridges and believe they are truly the best option for dental treatment for long term reliability to the patient so whether you have a couple of missing teeth or have several dental implant bridges will give you the reliability to function every day as they look and act as your natural teeth would do.
