If you must choose between teeth replacement options, dental implants are often the best. They are often better than bridges or dentures.
When replacing a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implants are the closest to your own teeth in function and appearance. They are also the healthiest. Other choices, such as a bridge or a denture can cause bone shrinkage. A partial or full denture placed on top of the gum causes continuous bone shrinkage. The denture becomes looser overtime and requires remakes. Only a dental implant can prevent bone shrinkage and keep your jaw healthy.
A dental implant crown emerges from the gum almost like a natural tooth. It offers you a tooth replacement which is different from the fused teeth of a traditional bridge. Dental implants are fixed in place. The implant titanium material fuses with your jawbone. As they are fused to bone, a dental implant can serve you for a lifetime.
Dental implants are the only dental restoration alternative that heals and maintains natural bone. A dental implant puts load inside the jaw bone, which preserves bone health. In contrast to conventional dentures, implant supported dentures are stable and comfortable. They allow you to live a natural life, without fear of a denture moving or falling out of your mouth. In addition, with implant restorations, you can enjoy your life to its fullest.
You can even replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. With a dental implant, there is no need to place crowns on adjacent healthy teeth. With a bridge, the adjacent teeth need to receive crowns to carry the replacement tooth. A dental implant go in the place where your missing tooth root was, in the jawbone without altering other teeth. A dental implant crown is easier to clean and maintain than a bridge.
