There are 3 options to tooth replacement: Removable Dental appliance, Fixed Dental Bridge and Dental Implants. Out of the three, Dental implant surgery is the standard of care for prosthetic replacement of damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth.
Why Dental implants?
Dentures can affect one’s taste and sensory experience with food whereas bridgework over time, may not fit well and is largely dependent on natural teeth for support. Any deviation in the natural teeth may lead to misalignment of the Dental Bridge. Dental implants, on the other hand, integrate into the bone structure and are therefore stable and also look and function much like natural teeth.
Dental implants are also used as an assistive procedure because of the stability they offer. Our team of dentists at Advanced Dental Smiles use their expertise in offering you the best dental treatment.
