Implants are inserted directly into the jaw bone and take the place of natural teeth. Implants are often preferred because they help to prevent bone loss because the implant takes the place of the root of the tooth. Before implants became popular and the treatment was perfected, missing teeth were often replaced using a bridge. A dental bridge sits between two healthy natural teeth to replace missing teeth. A dental bridge does not go below the gum line. There are several reasons why a dentist may recommend a bridge instead of implants.

Both of the options shown in this video deliver great cosmetic results. Watching this video will show you what you can expect from both treatment options. Learn more about both bridges and implants before you make a decision with your dentist about which is the best option for you.
