A dental bridge consists of at least two crowns that serve as anchors to support at least one missing tooth with a pontic crown. Regardless of the anchor teeth are fractured, decayed, or completely healthy, these teeth still need to be shaved down to later be covered and sealed with anchor crowns.
The hygiene of a Dental Bridge is more rigorous than that of a natural tooth or an implant. For this reason, people tend to fail to have good maintenance of their bridges.
Dental bridges do not require surgery as dental implants do, and they can last up to 10 years or longer if taken care of correctly. The time of completion is one week, and only two appointments are required.
The benefits of dental bridges include:
The price range of a zirconia 3-unit dental bridge is from $1,275.00 up to $1,500.00 dollars; this is at least 50% less compared to U.S prices and approximately 30% less than a dental implant here in Mexico.
A dental implant consists primarily of a titanium implant screw implanted into the maxilla or mandible, depending on the area where the tooth is missing. Once this implant is fully integrated into the bone, approximately 3 to 4 months after the surgery, it is restored with a titanium abutment and an abutment-supported crown. The dental implant is the procedure that replaces a missing tooth with a close as a possible natural tooth, since it mimics not only the appearance of the crown portion of the tooth but also the root itself, making oral hygiene more friendly.
To complete a dental implant roughly takes 3 to 4 months, and a minimum of 3, to a maximum of 5 appointments.
Dental implants can last up to 30 years if the patient has good oral hygiene, good eating and drinking habits and is a non-smoker.
The benefits of dental implants include:
