Why do you recommend dental implants?

When you lose a permanent tooth, it's crucial to replace it as soon as possible. Gaps in your smile can cause teeth to shift and even affect your facial appearance if left untreated. 

Dental bridgework and traditional dentures are time-tested methods for tooth replacement and are still an excellent solution in many cases. However, for long-term tooth replacement, dental implants are becoming the preferred solution by dentists and patients.

Dental implants are an ideal tooth replacement for several reasons. Whether you need to replace a visible front tooth or one in the back of your mouth where you chew, implants are an excellent choice.

Unlike a bridge or denture, a dental implant is designed to replace the tooth and the lost root. This is a significant benefit because the artificial tooth root helps prevent bone loss that occurs immediately after tooth loss.

Implants also offer ultimate comfort and stability because they're anchored in the jawbone and not on top of your gums. Once the implant heals and we restore it with a natural-looking crown, bridge, or denture, it will look and function just as a natural tooth does.
