Dental Implants: the Preferred Replacement Teeth Option

When someone is missing a tooth, they have several options available for tooth replacement.  One option is to have a bridge.  However, anchoring a bridge requires the teeth on either side of the missing tooth to be “prepared” or cut down.  It is often the case that two healthy teeth need to be cut down just to replace a missing tooth between them.


One of the great advantages of dental implants is that adjacent teeth are left untouched.  A single dental implant is a one-for-one tooth replacement.  When it comes to replacing a missing tooth, dental implants are the most conservative option, not only because they look and function like natural teeth, but also because they do not require adjacent, health teeth to be ground down and used as an anchors for an old-fashioned bridge.
