If you need a bridge or dental implant, here are the options.

Implant or bridge?

Alternatives in modern dentistry to replace a tooth that we have lost our bridges and implants. We are going to start with the bridges. These are divided into two those that are fixed and those that are
removable bridges. Removable bridges are metal structures with hooks that are attached to the bridge.
Grip the other teeth to hold the prosthesis normally
we replace one or more teeth that give us advantages and disadvantages we are going to see the
  •  Advantage number one a removable bridge is cheaper than a fixed bridge or an implant. This can go up to practically half the cost.
  • Advantage number two is swift. A removable bridge can be made in practically two weeks. 
  • Advantage number three is not an ideal option. We can always make a fixed bridge after an implant
  • Advantage number four, one of the most important there, is null or almost no mental wear.
  • Advantage number five can be used as a temporary before putting a bridge fixed or an implant in what one decides what to do is a significant advantage because it gives you time to determine what you can do. At the same time, you can already have one tooth. 
  • Advantage number six is that hygiene is relatively easy. Let's see the disadvantages the disadvantage that probably most displeases the patients is that as its name says, it is a removable is removed and therefore It's easy to lose. You have to know where you left it. No one is comfortable, also, if it is not well done can be evicted, and you can see yourself in a painful situation if you are in an important event. 
  • Disadvantage number two leads hooks between mobiles means that aesthetically it can get in the way a little bit. The sight and betrayal that it's removable usually people don't like that is seen wearing a prosthesis then this is a significant disadvantage of the removable when they are in the front there are some removable that use hooks that are not metallic are plastics. Still, that break and apart produces other problems in the long run. I recommend using removable that bring us metal hooks for their enormous disadvantages. We are going to see now what other option we have for rehabilitating a tooth without having to be removable. We have the option of a fixed bridge; what is a fixed bridge? A fixed bridge will replace a tooth grinding or wearing out neighboring teeth. What does this mean? That when you miss one tooth, neighbors are carved, and comes a bridge of three teeth holding to the middle; what advantages does this fixed bridge give us? 
  • Number one is fixed means that you don't evacuate, and you don't remove that gives you greater security without having to be thinking about what you're going to drop as opposed to the removable is that no It's got hooks so you can't practically see you're bringing a bridge.
  • The third advantage is that it is relatively fast and can be done in a couple of weeks, and you don't have to wait long to get your definitive tooth.
  • Advantage number four is an advantage and disadvantage because it is cheaper than the dental implant. But, still, it is less economical than a removable one at an intermediate price of the three treatments we're seeing.
  • Advantage number five is that sometimes when one loses a tooth, the neighboring teeth also have cavities, so the bridge is going to help you repair both teeth on the side plus the one we are replacing if the case applies is a good option now let's see what disadvantages have a fixed bridge.
  • Disadvantage number one wearing down if your teeth like it are healthy that the fixed bridge is your last choice because you really have to wear out enough of the tooth to replace a wearing part has you be like your previous choice to actually make a fixed bridge.
  • Disadvantage number two is irreversible once your teeth wear out. Next door, you can no longer return the enamel, so it is always recommended the option of a specialist to be sure that the fixed bridge is your unique and best choice. 
  • Disadvantage three is hygiene will be complicated to clean the middle of the two teeth where the bridge is complicated. There is that flossing between the two of us is always going to be challenging to clean.
  •   Disadvantage number four is that if one of the two pillars fails to remove the whole bridge, be very careful; it has to be very well done to ensure that they last for many years because if there are errors in any of them, there must remove the entire prosthesis and start over.
  • Disadvantage number five is this bridge; the bone below has been used for many years. Where the missing tooth is going to heal completely, and it's going to be very complicated to place an implant afterward, so think carefully when you put a fixed bridge at all these disadvantages and advantages. To see if you can, it is really convenient to make this bridge. We are now going to see implants. Then the dental implant consists of placing a titanium cylinder inside your bone. Which is a surgery that doesn't really bother you because you're anesthetized and over. This implant must be placed with a screwed crown. So yes, I would like to tell you the advantages and disadvantages of treatment with an implant.
  • Advantage number one is fixed and does not have to be removed.
  •   Advantage number two has no tooth wear, giving us much less invasive treatments and options where you don't have to. Touching healthy teeth.
  • Advantage number three implants have a 97 percent chance of success, the highest success rate in dentistry
  • Advantage number four is that cleaning the individual implant is very simple, which is how a tooth itself can be flossed backward and backward. Therefore, it can clean perfectly well. 
  • Advantage five is that human ability and technology allow us to obtain astonishing aesthetic results in dental implants
  • Advantage number six has neither hooks nor acrylic. Therefore, it is not going to see any object that hinders us from eating. 
  • Advantage number seven nowadays, some patients do not have any teeth and with 4 or 6 implants. Can have all of their complete dentures back, so dental implants are an excellent choice because they have many advantages. Let's see what disadvantages have. 
  • The disadvantage is the cost of the three treatments we have reviewed. This is the most expensive, but ultimately, the investment definitely recovers because it is a treatment that lasts many, many years.
  • Disadvantage two is that the waiting time is not the same as two weeks to have a tooth. To have to wait two months at least so you can have your tooth ready on waiting time is prolonged, so you have to have more patience.
  • Disadvantage number three, unfortunately of patients who can't be waited on. to apply implants patients for example who received radiotherapy in the zone near the jaw patients taking bisphosphonates which are some medicines that give for osteoporosis, diabetics or with problems in the immune system that may be more prone to infections as well as other systemic issues that you should discuss in your practice before placing implants then how can they see there are many options for replacing a tooth that was lost. So you will definitely see it with your prosthesis specialist so that he can perform your treatment. If they believe that any advantage or disadvantage of the treatments is missing, we mention leaving in the comments that feedback is always very important positive.
