Dental Implants vs. Dental Bridges

Glendale Dentist Serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Peoria, and nearby areas in Arizona

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, every patient has a unique set of circumstances to consider. While dental implants offer a more permanent and natural-looking tooth replacement option, our Glendale dentist Dr. Donald Wilcox also provides fixed dental bridges.

Some of the benefits of dental implants include:

  • A more natural aesthetic, feel and function
  • Less maintenance
  • Jaw and gums are stimulated, keeping them naturally healthy
  • More longevity and durability than dental bridges and dentures
  • Long-term cost benefits

While dental implants do offer many advantages, dental bridges can also be a viable solution for patients who:

  • Do not want to undergo surgery
  • Have significant damage or jaw bone loss
  • Prefer a less expensive financial investment up front

Whether you opt for dental implants or a fixed dental bridge, our Glendale dentist, Dr. Wilcox knows how to help  you achieve the results and healthy-looking smile you desire.
