Both a bridge and an implant are excellent solutions for fixing a missing tooth. There are some differences that need to be considered when you plan your treatment. A bridge is a much quicker procedure however it requires reducing neighboring teeth. In addition a bridge requires special threaded floss for cleaning. A dental implant substitutes the root structure which stabilizes and maintain healthy bone tissue. This restoration does not require any special care after completion. The timespan needed to complete the procedure can be a drawback.
