Success Rate Of A Dental Implant vs. A Traditional Bridge
The traditional dental bridge has been around for decades and was previously seen as an ideal solution to replacing a missing tooth. As technology has advanced, the dental implant is now the optimal long-term tooth replacement option because it can last a lifetime. Research shows that a dental bridge lasts only 7-10 years on average and then must be replaced. This is due to the bridge being difficult to clean and therefore making decay of the crowned teeth eminent.
