Dental implants provide a more advanced replacement technology for a missing tooth than a traditional bridge. Dental implants are more cost effective in the long run because they preserve the bone and adjacent teeth. On the average, a dental bridge will last 6-7 years. A dental implant can last 40 years or more.
Even losing one tooth can cause bone loss. Bone loss in your jawbone can give you an older appearance. Dental implants create stimulation to the underlying bone, preserving bone mass and enhancing long-term aesthetics.
Yes! Like natural teeth, your new teeth are strong, stable, and secure, so you can comfortably eat all your favorite foods – even popcorn and apples!
Dental implants are a long-lasting solution – often for life. Manufactured from titanium, dental implants provide a highly biocompatible surface, encouraging bone to attach to the implant during the healing process to ensure long-term results.
