There was a time when dentures and bridges were the only options available to replace missing teeth. Anyone who has worn cosmetic dentures or a bridge will be aware of the pluses and minuses attached. In comparison to dental implants (also known as teeth implants) both are relatively limited. Dental implants do not slip and are fixed. Unquestionably, they are currently the closest thing to natural teeth with regards to strength, durability, comfort and care as well as aesthetically. Indeed, they are quite literally teeth implants!
Why Dental Implants? Is It A Must?
While no dentist would suggest you MUST have dental implants there are significant advantages in doing so. For example: If you have two or three back teeth missing on one side, the functionality of teeth implants would be far superior to partial dentures. Known as flippers, without a tooth to attach a bridge, the functionality of partial dentures is more aesthetic than functional.
Teeth implants can be used to replace all the teeth OR to provide a solid anchor for a bridge – Which increases functionality and comfort substantially. If you have just one tooth missing and opt for a bridge; the teeth either side of the missing tooth need to be ground down. With teeth implants they do not: Which means your healthy teeth remain intact and untouched: Another good reason to opt for dental implants.
Are Implants An Option For You?
A qualified dental surgeon is the best person to offer advice on whether you are a suitable candidate for dental implants: Not everyone is suitable which ultimately means the chance of this treatment being successful is not promising. However, even if you are suitable and you are keen to take advantage of the benefits, there are other factors to consider: And cost is a major factor for most. Even so, dental implants are a long term investment and there are payment plans available to help finance that investment. The best thing to do first is get an estimate and know your options.
