Dental implants are a tooth replacement system that includes a new root and replacement tooth designed to match your other teeth. Most implants are permanent, but you may be able to get removable implants as well. After tooth loss, why do many people choose to get an implant rather than using dentures or a bridge?
Tooth loss can happen for a number of reasons. Gum disease and tooth decay are common problems in older adults, but even young people can sustain an injury or have congenitally missing teeth. Dental implants provide a convenient, good-looking alternative to bridges and dentures. No matter why you are missing teeth, talk with your dentist to find out if implants are a good option for you.
