What Is A Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a tooth root replacement that serves the same function as a natural tooth root. Dental implants are made of titanium, which is a biocompatible material used successfully in orthopedics for decades. It preserves bone and provides a stable foundation for a substitute tooth that looks, feels and functions like a natural tooth.
Dental Implant Advantages
Dental implants can be use to replace natural teeth when they are lost, damaged or fail to form, even when bone damage or loss has occurred. They can last a lifetime, unlike bridges, partials and dentures that may need to be replaced several times. Since dental implants prevent bone resorption that occurs when tooth roots are missing, the natural appearance of the smile and contours of the face are preserved.
With implant treatment, there is no compromise to adjacent teeth; they are not cut down to place a bridge, or loosened by the hooks on removable partials. Dentures and partials have the added disadvantage of accelerating the bone resorption process, which, among other things, causes the appearance of premature aging.

Dental Implants vs. Dentures vs. Bridges
Dental implants replace the entire tooth root without having to affect surrounding teeth. Dentures can not only look unnatural and feel unpleasant, but they require frequent dental visits for adjustments or even complete replacement. Additionally, full arch dentures lead to bone resorption (shrinkage) of the jaw thus changing your facial appearance and requiring even further treatment. Bridges require the surrounding teeth to be modified to place the bridge. Because a bridge does not replace the tooth root, gums and bone at the missing tooth site recede, leading to an unsightly and even embarrassing appearance. Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option that offers all the benefits of a real tooth and none of the problems experienced with dentures or bridges. Compare the benefits below...
