In dentistry, a ceramic bridge is the fixed restoration of a gap between teeth. Ideally, the adjacent teeth serve as bridge abutments by being ground down, crowned and firmly connected to each other by one or more pontics according to the size of the gap.
In contrast to a bridge, a single tooth implant stands on its own and is completely independent of the neighboring teeth. The jaw bone remains intact around an implant, whereas it shrinks in the long term in the case of tooth gaps (such as exist under a pontic). Consequently, later implantations are usually no longer possible without bone augmentation.
The great advantage of a tooth bridge over a dental implant is that the treatment can be completed in one week. In the case of implant restoration, the treatment steps require several months, whereby the healing phase of the implant is decisive.
Each implant stands on its own, so cleaning is possible in the same way as with your own teeth. Dental bridges are cleaned with special dental flosses, which have to be threaded under the pontics in a complex process
Our high expectations for an aesthetic appearance are met.
Both dental bridge and implant are fixed and provide a solution for missing teeth. However, the dental bridge exerts increased pressure on the adjacent teeth, reducing their lifespan due to the tension exerted over a longer period of time.
With dental implants, there is no grinding of healthy teeth, so they are the better solution for sparing your own teeth.
