Dental implants are a much better option than a bridge or partial denture. Why compromise the structure of surrounding healthy teeth to bridge a space? In addition, removing a partial denture at night or after meals may be inconvenient and cause food trapping between other teeth. When teeth are missing, the jawbone starts to deteriorate. However, dental implants stop the bone from melting away, providing a much more pleasing appearance and significant improvement in chewing function compared to an empty space.
Dental implants can be used to restore a single missing tooth, several missing teeth or the entire dental arch. If conventional dentures are not fitting well due to lack of jawbone, an implant-supported denture can be ideal in returning proper retention and function of your dentures.
