Bridges and dentures are very effective solutions for missing teeth. It can be very inconvenient to have missing teeth, as you lose some ability to eat and speak, and these dental prosthetics restore both function and appearances.
Another effective solution is dental implants. These are small metal posts that are inserted directly into the jawbone and topped with the tooth replacement, usually a crown. Implants have additional benefits, as they are more stable and long-lasting than bridges or dentures. Additionally, they can prevent bone recession as they stimulate the jaw bone, which bridges and dentures cannot do.
Benefits of dental implants
When you get dental implants, you will be able to enjoy many benefits. Implants:
- Function, look, and feel like natural teeth
- Allow for improved speech and eating
- Will not come loose, as dentures or bridges can
- Prevent or slow down bone loss
- Are easier to clean and maintain
Before any work can be done to place dental implants, a consultation will be needed. Your dentist will examine your overall oral health and determine whether or not you have sufficient bone structure to support the implants.
