Bridges vs Implants

Bridges and implants are two ways to replace a missing tooth or teeth.

A bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. It is called a “bridge” because it covers a gap. Bridges are false teeth anchored in place by neighbouring teeth. The bridge consists of two crowns on the anchoring teeth along with the false tooth in the center.

Dental implants are artificial roots used to support replacement teeth. One or more small metal posts are surgically inserted beneath the gums into the jaw bone. In a few months, when the implants are fused to the surrounding bone, the artificial tooth or teeth are then attached.
