Dental implants are truly unique in the world of dentistry because they do something no other treatment can: replace an entire tooth from root to crown. Instead of just placing a restoration on top of the gums, a small post is positioned within the jawbone in place of a missing tooth, and this provides the foundation for a new crown, bridge, or denture. Compared to more traditional restorations, dental implants offer a number of terrific advantages:
A dental implant-supported crown can be placed between two healthy teeth without disturbing them at all, which is much less invasive compared to a bridge that requires the nearby teeth to be shaved down to hold the prosthetic.
For patients missing teeth throughout their mouth or even consecutively, implants can also be attached to a bridge to give the replacement teeth a stability a removable prosthetic simply can’t match. Implant-retained bridges also tend to look more natural and require less maintenance by comparison as well.
A full denture can be anchored to the jawbone using just a few well-placed implant roots. This is not only more cost effective versus replacing each tooth individually, but it creates a more comfortable and secure set of teeth compared to regular dentures as well.
