Dental Implants vs. Bridges: Which is Better? Torrance, CA

Dental Implants vs. Bridges: Which is Better?

At Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, we often hear questions from patients about which is the better option: dental implants or bridges. While both are effective treatments for replacing missing teeth, dental implants come with several advantages over fixed bridges.

For one, dental implants are non-invasive to neighboring teeth. This means that unlike fixed bridges, your healthy teeth adjacent to the missing one are not altered in any way. Whereas bridges require cutting down the adjacent teeth to attach a fixed bridge on top of them for support.

Dental implants are also superior in terms of their ability to restore full functionality to the mouth. With an implant, you can chew, speak, and smile just as you would with their natural teeth. They’re stronger than natural teeth, so you won’t have to cut out any of your favorite foods.

Additionally, implants are designed to last for life with proper care and maintenance, while bridges eventually need to be replaced. Even though dental implants are more of an initial expense, they offer the best return on investment when it comes to the future health of your smile!

Ultimately, the choice between dental implants and bridges depends on several factors unique to each individual patient. At Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, our team of dental professionals can guide you through the decision-making process and help you determine the best option for your dental health.

Don’t let missing teeth negatively impact your life any longer. Schedule a consultation with Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center today and discover the transformative power of dental implants.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

  • Mindy W.

    This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

  • Raj G.

    Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

  • Chahab S.

    Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

  • Paul M.

    A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
