While our modern technology works well to prevent it, tooth loss can happen, and when it does our patients may want more than just removable dentures and partials. That is where implants come in. Tooth implants are designed to replace damaged tooth foundations, creating a new sturdy root for replacement teeth.
There are plenty of benefits to tooth implants that can’t be achieved with bridges or dentures. This includes durability, improved appearance, improved function in both eating and speaking, and easier care. Because implants are designed to look and behave like a normal tooth, they do not need the special care or adhesives that dentures do. Implants do not decay—however, they still need proper care and maintenance.
