While technologically advanced, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or other mitigating circumstances.
Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth. Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own!
Advantages of Dental Implants Over Dentures or a Bridge:
- Esthetic: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. Since dental implants integrate into the structure of your bone, they prevent the bone loss and gum recession that often accompany bridgework and dentures. No one will ever know that you have a replacement tooth.
- Tooth-saving: Dental implants don’t sacrifice the quality of your adjacent teeth like a bridge does because neighbouring teeth are not altered to support the implant. More of your own teeth are left untouched, a significant long-term benefit to your oral health.
- Confidence: Dental implants will allow you to once again speak and eat with comfort and confidence. They are secure and offer freedom from irksome clicks and wobbles of dentures. They will allow you to say goodbye to worries about misplaced dentures and messy pastes and glues.
- Reliable: The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
