Dental Implants are the best and complete solution to missing teeth, and are seen in the dental industry as the best option for replacing one or several missing teeth.
Dental Implants are better than the older, alternative treatments for tooth loss, such as bridges and dentures, for a variety of reasons. Dentures and bridges don’t do anything to solve the bone, tooth, and gum loss problem. Fixed bridges even require further grinding down of the adjacent teeth so that the bridges can fit. This leads to the eventual issue of the surrounding teeth starting to deteriorate, and eventually fall out. A single lost tooth can start a domino effect unless a strong foundation is installed along with the cosmetic replacement teeth.
Removable dentures, in addition to doing nothing about the tooth and bone loss, are a temporary fix to bone loss. Dentures slip, require messy creams, and prevent you from eating the foods you love. They truly feel like “false teeth”.
Dental implants look just like your old teeth, and you will learn to love them like your own teeth. They don’t slip, they look great, and they are the healthy solution to tooth replacement!
