Restoration of a sigle tooth - implant vs porcelain bridge

Dentistry and dental surgery abroad

 About us - plastic surgery and dental treatment in Poland

The reconstruction of a single missing tooth is possible in two ways:

using a dental implant and the dental crown mounted on it or using a porcelain bridge

Which way is better? Which one is cheaper? How long does the treatment last for and what with the results? What to choose?

If there are no contraindications to the implantation, the advantage of the implant over the porcelain bridge is large.

Initially, considering the options, one issue particulary makes a big difference to us - the price!!!

And so the porcelain crowns have an advantage over dental implant when it comes to price, however, in long-term thinking, a dental implant might be a better solution.

What is the advantage of the implant over the porcelain bridge?

- we do not touch adjacent teeth. When placing on a porcelain bridge, it requires grinding of adjacent, healthy teeth)

- we avoid bone loss process (the lack of even a single tooth leads to bone loss, which is very detrimental for our body, whereas when implanting the implant, we rebuild the root of the lost tooth, which stimulates bone growth by stimulating bone tissue and avoiding its disappearance).

- implanted implant can be used in the future as a pillar for many solutions for reconstruction of lost teeth

- from the medical point of view it is the best method to restore missing teeth The only 'downside' if we can call it that, is the price.

Inserting 1 implant and making a porcelain crown on costs approximately twice as high as the restoration of the defect with a 3-point porcelain bridge (just to remind you, in order to rebuild the lack of 1 tooth, you need to polish two adjacent ones and put on them a 3-point bridge - where the outer points are based on the patient's polished, healthy teeth, and the third point - between them, is a rebuilt, missing tooth).

Treatment time:

Reconstruction of the tooth by implanting the implant and making a porcelain crown on is a treatment that must definitely be done in stages: 1st stage is an implant placement, while the second stage can start after 3-6 months from the moment of implantation (after a period of full implant integration with the bone).

Reconstruction of the tooth lack using a porcelain bridge is a period of about 7- 10 working days.
