When teeth are missing, due to lack of chewing pressure to stimulate the bone growth the bone start shirking and that will continue until a dental implant is paced. If left too long, there might be a need for bone grafting. The loss of support for facial structure cause facial sagging and premature aging. Dental implant integrate into the structure of the bone and prevent bone loss to happen.


Dental implant reduce eliminate the need for damaging other healthy teeth

With dental implant there is no need for any alteration to the healthy adjacent teeth like with bridge. Your healthy teeth are left untouched.


Dental implant can replace many missing teeth as well as single missing tooth

With bridges the existence of healthy adjacent teeth on the side of the missing teeth is crucial. So if you are missing many teeth the bridge is not an option as there are no anchor teeth. In this case dental implant are the best choice as they can act as the root of your normal tooth and support bridge or denture.
