For the traditional “three-unit bridge,” replacing a missing tooth involves grinding down adjacent teeth so they can support the bridge. The result of this treatment is that two good teeth have to be compromised just to replace one missing tooth.
One of the benefits of dental implants is that adjacent teeth are left untouched. A dental implant is a one-for-one replacement. The missing tooth is replaced with a dental implant. Adjacent and opposing natural teeth continue to function.
One of the goals of implant dentistry is to make sure that the implant tooth looks and functions like a natural tooth, so the patient can talk, chew, smile, and laugh. By using dental implants, a conservative yet high tech and modern approach, the doctor makes sure that the patient gets the best of both worlds—the most advanced tooth replacement system ever devised working in harmony with natural teeth.
