If you have lost a tooth due to an extraction, infection, or decay, dental implants are a wonderful option to restore a missing tooth. There are several benefits to a dental implant when compared to other appliances, such as a dental bridge.
An implant looks and feels just like a natural tooth, so no one will ever know you had implant surgery. They are comfortable and do not require specific care. You brush and floss the implant as you do your natural teeth, and because the tooth is implanted, there is no need to remove the implant as you would a denture. Also, there is no need to affect the surrounding teeth as you would a dental bridge.
Implants are durable and can last for a very long time! Bridges and dentures have to be replaced over time. An implant saves you time and money over the long run.
Having an implant also stimulates your own bone growth and prevents further loss to the bone as would happen if the tooth was not replaced.
Lastly, the implant is permanent, will not shift or move, and allows you to smile with confidence.
