Modern dentistry provides multiple solutions for patients missing one or more teeth. Weighing different options and costs can be overwhelming, especially when it may be unclear if one option is better than another. We provide many restorative solutions in our office, including dental bridges and dentures. The most advanced and predictable long-term, however, is dental implants. Dental implants are initially a costlier solution, so understanding the factors that go into the cost of dental implants, as well as their long-term advantages, are critical in determining if they are right for you.
As the only permanent replacement for missing teeth, dental implants boast many functional and aesthetic benefits that other options simply cannot achieve. Dental implants are a replacement for missing teeth, not a replacement for no teeth. By taking on the structural makeup of natural teeth, implants can reproduce virtually 100 percent of their functional aspects, including stimulating the jaw bone to preserve its integrity and strength. With this artificial tooth root system in place, dental implants do not rely on the support of surrounding teeth. Alone, they provide a strong foundation for the dental crown or denture that is attached, taking on the same level of durability and aesthetics. All in all, dental implants can replace any number of teeth, providing significant health and functional benefits comparable to that of natural and healthy teeth!
