Identifying the Issue



Of course, the average patient will not be fully educated on what their treatment options entail; this is something to be expected.

Most people gather ideas of what they think certain dental treatments might entail from combinations of things seen on television, social media, or things they’ve heard from friends and family.

As a dental professional, it is your duty to explain the treatment to your patient in order to ensure that they know exactly what they are being presented with; this is the best way to ensure that they are choosing the treatment that is best for them.

In most cases, people know what they want and they know what will work best for them; they just need to know all the facts before they make a decision.


Bridges vs Dental Implants



When helping your patient decide between bridges and implants, it’s important to inform them of the following:

  • Implants will preserve bone structure, while a bridge will not
  • Bridges require preparation to be done on the two adjacent teeth surrounding the space in the mouth that is to be filled- essentially, alterations must be made to otherwise healthy teeth
  • Bridges are less expensive than implants
  • Insurance typically does not cover implants, but may cover bridges
  • Candidacy for implants is dependent on present bone structure

In most cases, implants are the best long-term solution to a missing tooth; they almost perfectly mimic the natural structure of the tooth, provide long-lasting results, and require no damage to be made to any other teeth in the mouth.

For some people, implants may not be the best personal option, whether this be due to financial reasons, a lack of bone structure, or simple personal preference. Ensuring that your patient has all the necessary facts will help the consultation run smoother and will prevent miscommunication down the line.
