What's the difference between a bridge and an implant?
A bridge replaces a missing tooth or missing teeth by using adjacent teeth as anchors. It connects the teeth together while still looking like separate teeth. However, you cannot floss between the teeth. A dental implant does not involve the adjacent teeth. It is a one tooth solution for a one tooth problem. The implant is a titanium artificial root to which a crown is attached through a connector called an abutment. The implant complex looks and feels like a natural tooth and you can floss around it normally.
