Why after considerable research into all the options, do so many people choose dental implants over all other tooth replacement methods?
Longevity is one answer. A dental bridge may last for up to ten years at best, but once an implant is installed it is there to stay. The assurance that comes with knowing that a restoration is permanently fixed in place can give one the self confidence he needs to interact with others. He can once again feel free to take part in a conversation, enjoy all the foods that he likes and laugh out loud at will without fear of slipping dentures or exposing unsightly bridgework.
An implant will have no impact on other healthy teeth. A bridge is attached on either side to the adjoining teeth meaning that they will need to be modified in some way in order to accommodate the bridge. Dentures depend on the support of the teeth and gums, but an implant is installed as part of the jawbone and totally independent of other teeth.
A dental implant is as close as you can come to the quality and sufficiency of a natural tooth and it will require the same care and attention. Continue to see your dentist at regular intervals.
