Dental Implants Provide More Benefits Than Replacing Missing Teeth
Your teeth were designed to last a lifetime, but sometimes they can be lost due to trauma from an accident, gum disease, tooth decay, genetics or other lifestyle choices. Replacing missing teeth is important to your general health and to the health of your other teeth because not only do you lose your chewing ability when a tooth is lost, but not replacing lost teeth can cause other teeth to be lost, tipped or crowded and create subsequent dental problems. Also, there are the obvious problems of poor facial appearance and loss of self-confidence caused by one or more missing teeth.
What Are The Advantages Of Implant-Supported Bridges Over Fixed Bridges Or Removable Partial Dentures?
Dental implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported bridges replace teeth without support from adjacent natural teeth. Other common treatments for the loss of several teeth, such as fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, are dependent on support from adjacent teeth.
If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges are an excellent option for you. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots. Having dental implants replace your lost teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want, speak with confidence and smile whenever you want.
