Bridges Compared to Teeth

04/18/2005

Question:

How do implants compare to two missing teeth. The last upper molar is a solid capped tooth, then two missing teeth and then another capped tooth. I previously had a removable one tooth bridge in this spot, and liked it better than the fixed bridge on the other side. It was easier to clean and felt better chewing.

Answer:

Contraindications to Implant Placement (NIH Consensus Conference
