Dental implants offer people more than just a replacement for a missing tooth. The dental implant is a substitute for the root of the tooth and is fused with the bone. The restored dental implant looks, feels and functions just like a real tooth. Another important aspect of dental implants is that they preserve jaw bone levels and prevent further damage to the patient’s smile. Furthermore, dental implants can never get decay and will never need a root canal. Dental implants are the longest lasting tooth replacement option available.
The Advantages of Dental Implants.
Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime. Implants look, feel and function just like a natural tooth. Dental implants are the only tooth replacement method that preserves bone levels in the jaw. A dental implant procedure can restore self-esteem and confidence for those with missing or damaged teeth.
Dental Bridge or Dental Implant
Dental bridges are old technology. They require damaging the teeth that are next to the missing tooth. Usually aggressive cutting on the adjacent teeth is necessary in order to get a bridge to work. Sometimes this aggressive cutting will cause the tooth’s nerve to die and a root canal will have to be performed. Bridges merely “bridge” over the missing tooth space. No stimulation of gum tissue or bone. Thus, the tissue and bone will start to disappear leaving ugly tissue voids under the bridge. They are once solid piece and are difficult to clean. Because the bridge is so difficult to clean, the teeth holding the bridge frequently get decay. Now a new bridge must be made.
Dental Implants do not damage adjacent teeth and are a very conservative treatment. Dental implants never get decay or need a root canal. Implants are fused into the jaw bone where they stimulate and preserve bone levels. Implants are designed to last a lifetime, whereas bridges usually fail after 15 years.
