Dental implants are the most advanced way to replace missing teeth. Patients clean their dental implants just like their natural teeth. Patients can floss between their dental implants and natural teeth. Whereas, a dental bridge needs a special tool (floss threader) to get under the bridge.  Furthermore, bridges damage teeth while dental implants don’t damage adjacent teeth.

A dental implant can improve your smile.

Teeth replacements should look exactly like natural teeth. Dental implants are the most cosmetic option to replace missing teeth because they are designed to act just like a natural tooth. Even with only one tooth missing, long term cosmetic results are far superior with a dental implant as opposed to old fashioned tooth supported bridge. The dental implant will preserve and stimulate bone. The tooth supported bridge may be cosmetic initially. However, overtime the bone that once supported the missing tooth will atrophy and dissolve creating a gum tissue defect under the bridge.
