When you need to replace missing teeth, dental implants are a great alternative to traditional bridges and dentures. If you haven’t ever considered this state-of-the-art tooth replacement, here are three reasons why you should:
Their Design Mimics Natural Teeth
Each implant is designed to function as if it were a natural tooth root. As your bone integrates with the surface of the implant, it becomes stable enough to support a crown, bridge, or even a denture.
Not only does this design make it easier to care for, it also prevents Dr. Mansoor from having to alter the structural integrity of your neighboring teeth. If you were, say, to get a bridge, we would have to reshape your supporting teeth and put a crown on them even if they didn’t need one.
Enhanced Comfort and Confidence
Because of their independent, streamlined design, your implants look and feel more like a real tooth. There’s no need for a bulky prosthesis that stretches across the roof of your mouth. The result is clearer speech, more freedom to eat your favorite food, and optimal comfort.
A Smarter Long-Term Investment
When well cared for, the dental implants themselves can last for the rest of your life. While a crown over your artificial root may eventually wear out and need to be replaced, you can typically count on your implant lasting for decades. It offers a far better return on investment than other tooth replacement treatments.
