Dental Implants vs. Crown and Bridge: Which Restorative Option is Right for You?

Shutterstock Explaining ImplantsFor patients with missing teeth, modern technology and the wide world of restorative dentistry offer many options. At Smile Creations in Massapequa Park, NY, Dr. Allan Mohr and his team help patients of various ages and backgrounds rebuild their damaged, incomplete smiles with lifelike, quality restorations, including dental implants and bridges. A common question from patients considering tooth replacement options involves the choice between dental implants and a bridge: which one is best?

Should I Choose a Bridge or Dental Implants?

A fixed bridge is a dental prosthesis that is designed to replace between one and three missing teeth, spanning the gap between two natural teeth that are structurally sound. Two custom-made porcelain crowns are affixed to the anchoring teeth on either side of the gap, and the prosthetic teeth in between effectively replace those that have been lost.

A dental implant replaces the entirety of a missing tooth, including the root within the bone of the jaw. It consists of a strategically placed post that fuses with the jaw over time, serving as a sturdy anchor for a custom restoration. Dental implants look, feel, and function exactly like your natural teeth, all while providing essential stimulation within the jaw bone; this prevents further deterioration and reduces the risk of additional tooth loss in the future. A dental implant is the one restorative option that precisely mirrors the functionality of a natural tooth, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile freely without limitations.

So which is better? Because each patient is unique, there is no straightforward, one-size-fits-all answer to this question. A consultation with Dr. Mohr will help determine which restorative dentistry solution best suits your individual needs, giving you the opportunity to explore your options and get answers to any questions you may have. Our team looks forward to helping you with your decision and providing you with the best restorative dental care in the industry.

Dr. Allan Mohr Explains: How Do Dental Implants Work?

shutterstock_46186261In our constantly evolving, highly technical age, virtually any fact or statistic you could ever want to know can be retrieved in a mere instant. If you’re wondering about the weather for the weekend, you pull up a forecast. If you want to read about what’s happening in the world, global news is there at your fingertips anytime you like. What if, however, you want to learn about how a specific dental procedure – like dental implants, for example – really works? You don’t necessarily want to sift through millions of websites, but you do want to be sure that the information you’re getting is from a reliable source. At Smile Creations in Massapequa Park, NY, Dr. Allan S. Mohr helps informed consumers just like you learn more about restorative dentistry, all in a way that is factual but still easy to understand.

Get the Facts on Dental Implants

While the placement of dental implants is a somewhat advanced procedure – one that can only be performed by an oral healthcare professional with extensive training – comprehending it shouldn’t be a complicated ordeal for patients. Dr. Mohr prefers to explain all of his procedures openly and frankly with his patients, providing them with a complete understanding of their treatment before, during, and after it’s completed. This is all part of the trust and sense of comfort we strive to build with each of our patients every day.

Simply stated, a dental implant is a permanent replacement for a missing tooth. Whereas dentures, bridges and other dental prosthetics lie over the top of the gum, a dental implant is actually anchored within the jaw bone – just like your natural teeth. A small, biocompatible post made of titanium is secured within the gum tissue and the bone of your jaw where your missing tooth once stood.

After a brief period of healing (during which your jaw bone will integrate and fuse with the implant), a customized crown will be precision-placed and affixed to the post that is now your new tooth’s “root.” This meticulously crafted crown completes a look that is seamless, flawless, and entirely natural. With your new restoration, you are able to once again speak, chew, and smile with complete comfort and confidence.
