Multiple Tooth Replacment
Dental Implants provide several advantages over other teeth replacement options. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant-supported bridges replace teeth without the required support from the adjacent natural teeth. Futhermore, implant-support bridges allow bone levels to be better preserved. Traditional fixed bridges or removable partial dentures enable the bone surrounding adjacent teeth to resorb or deteriorate. Moreover, gums and bone can recede around a fixed bridge or removable partial denture, leaving a visible defect. Resorbed bone and gum recession beneath a fixed bridge or removable partial denture can lead to a collapsed, unattractive smile. Also, the cement that holds bridges in place can become weak and allow bacteria to decay the teeth that anchor the bridge. In addition, removable partial detures can move around in the mouth and reduve your ability to eat certain foods. In the long term, dental implants are esthetic, functional, comfortable and, more importantly, easy to maintain.
