The Leading Alternative to Replace Missing Teeth
Natural in both appearance and feel, dental implants have revolutionized restorative dentistry in the previous 20 years. And because they offer superior success rates and a range of options for patients and dentists alike, they’re one of several preferred treatment options used by Dr. Bieneman.
Dr. Bieneman and the rest of our team turn to implants for patients missing just one tooth or several, improving functionality and cosmetic beauty in all cases.
Implants are the Leading Alternative to Bridges
In the past, bridges or removable dentures were the preferred method used to replace missing teeth. However, bridges often have negative repercussions for surrounding teeth, causing further oral health issues instead of a desirable permanent solution.
Today, dental implants are used for patients who have adequate bone mass to support the implant. All that’s required prior to treatment is an x-ray and CT-scan to evaluate the size and type of implant that will work best for you.
Benefits of Choosing Dental Implants
There are several unique reasons why you might want to choose dental implants over other options. However, there are also a handful of common benefits, including:
- Improved Appearance – Implants are placed on a titanium cylinder in your gums, replicating the appearance of your natural teeth and giving you a natural looking smile.
- Reduced Bone Absorption – Once a tooth is lost, the bone structure that once supported it will recede. An implant will reduce bone absorption while offering stability to implants.
- Poses No Negative Repercussions for Surrounding Teeth – Unlike bridges, implants are independent units designed to keep the rest of your smile looking great!
