The Smart, Long-Term Alternative to Dentures & Bridges
Implants are extremely versatile. If you have one missing tooth, a single implant and one replacement tooth will do the trick. If you are missing several teeth in a row, a few strategically placed implants can support a permanent bridge (a set of replacement teeth). Similarly, if you have lost all of your teeth, a full bridge or full denture can be permanently fixed in your mouth using a strategic number of implants to support the denture.
Many Advantages Over Dentures or Bridges
Conventional bridges and dentures cannot be anchored directly to the jawbone, which can make them feel unstable. Wearers report difficulty eating or smiling with confidence.
Implants not only look more natural but feel and act more like normal teeth with a stronger biting force. And because they don’t directly rely on neighboring teeth for support, implants don’t compromise the health of your natural teeth. Dr. Patel says most bridges are only expected to last seven to ten years or less if they have undergone root canals.
