Dental implants are the ideal solution in most cases of tooth loss.
Implants are titanium screws that are osseointegrated into the bone where the natural root of the tooth would have been. Implants are able to replace a tooth and feel the most natural when compared to partial dentures or bridges.
In addition to the aesthetic and functional purpose, they also prevent the bone atrophy or resorption you tend to see when a tooth is lost and simply replaced with a bridge or denture. This bone shrinkage in your face leads to a sunken and “aged” look. Additionally, dentures can be adjusted to attach to implants, therefore avoiding loose dentures falling out during a meal or while speaking.
