The topic of dental implants comes up in our practice just about every day. If a patient has lost a tooth for any number of reasons, we review all the replacement options with the patient. After hearing all the pros and cons about each option, our patients largely prefer filling in that missing space with a dental implant.
It is the option that most closely resembles a natural tooth. They help preserve your jaw bone and have a very natural look and feel.
Dental implants have a 99% long term success rate and securely stay in place unlike a partial denture. There is no need to grind down the surrounding teeth like is necessary for a bridge. This reduces the chance of problems in the future.
If you want the next best thing to your own natural tooth, choose a dental implant.
