Dental Implants vs. Fixed Bridgework—Which Option is Best for You?

If you are about to have a permanent tooth extracted, understanding the options is critical as implants and bridgework both have their pros and cons. An implant is actually a root replacement; however, unlike the root of a tooth, the implant actually fuses to the jawbone with a permanent crown attached to it. Implants function and look just like natural teeth. 

By contrast, a fixed bridge is a restoration or prosthesis (replacement part) that is fixed in place by attaching it to adjacent natural teeth that are reduced to allow room for the crowns.
