How Implants Are Different from Other Restoration Options

Though there are many options for replacing missing teeth, dental implants have truly become the gold standard in dental restoration. They’re a long-term answer to this problem for patients, and unlike dentures or bridgework, they’re long-term and secure. When implants are placed, they don’t require shaving or grinding of existing healthy teeth like bridges do, which preservesthe integrity of the teeth surrounding the implant area.

The titanium implant, which is surgically placed into the bone, functions just like an artificial root. It provides the entire fixed restoration with stability and security, while preventing bone loss that can occur when a missing tooth’s gap is not filled.

Aesthetically, you’ll have a normal-appearing tooth that fills the space, thanks to the crown that is affixed to the titanium screw. It prevents teeth in the surrounding area from shifting or tipping over, keeping your bite in tip-top shape, while persevering the appearance of your face by supporting the lips and cheeks in those locations just like a normal tooth would do.

Maybe the best advantage for implants is that they have an impressive success rate and you’ll be able to enjoy all your favourite foods with confidence once more.
