Dental Implants are a Popular Alternative for Replacing Teeth
Dental Implants have become a popular alternative for replacing teeth lost to decay or trauma, providing men and women with a more comfortable, more natural-feeling solution compared to dentures and bridges.
If you’re missing a tooth, an implant could be just the solution you are looking for to improve your smile.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are state-of-the-art tooth replacements that use a post to attach an artificial tooth or crown to the jawbone. The implant acts like a tooth root to provide a secure and stable attachment so your new implant looks, feels and functions just like your natural tooth.
Are Dental Implants Better than Bridges or Dentures?
Dental implants offer several advantages over bridges and dentures:
- Implants are integrated to the jawbone, so they won’t cause embarrassing slippage or painful sore spots along your gums
- Implants stimulate the regeneration of the jawbone cells, just like a natural tooth root; bridges and dentures rest on the gums and can’t stimulate the growth of new bone, which means the jawbone can atrophy over time, increasing the risk of additional tooth loss.
- Implants require no special care—just regular brushing and flossing and routine trips to the dentist to keep them in top shape for years to come.
