I thought before that teeth fixed bridge and implant was merely the same, I was wronged when my dentist and husband tried to explain it to me what’s the difference between the two.
The teeth implant is a root device; it is made of titanium to support restorations that resemble a tooth to replace the missing teeth. Dental implants in today’s generation placed a root-form endosseous, they are much likely resembled to the actual tooth root, and they are place within the bone too. To those who undergone implants could feel a bit different when they chew because even though the dental implant will fuse with bone, they are still lacking the periodontal ligament. Aside from the endosseous implants, some placed blade endosseous implant and subperiosteal implants.

However the fixed bridge is a fixed non removable unlike the normal denture, it is the brightest way to fill in the missing space. Although it requires money just like the implant, there are some processes that you may still have to undergo. There are two options for fixed bridge; one is the traditional fixed bridge. It is usually made of porcelain fused to metal while the porcelain resembles the natural teeth. Fixed bridge can maintain facial shape; it is prevention for the remaining teeth from drifting out of position. It can restore your smile. Of course you have the non-removable dental appliance.

I have decided for a fixed bridge today, good thing my dentist allowed me to pay her installment basis so it is not that heavy in the pocket.
