An alternative to an implant is a fixed bridge. With this option it is necessary to grind down the teeth adjacent to the space in order to have caps fit onto the ground down teeth. The caps hold a faux replacement tooth in the middle. With this approach, the ground down teeth are more subject to dental decay and root canals. With a (fixed bridge) the teeth are connected together making daily hygiene more challenging. Unlike a dental implant, the bridge cannot produce any additional biting force.
