Implant to replace a single missing tooth ← Back to Dental Implants
Dental implants are artificial high-tech tooth roots, which become fully integrated into the jawbone. They act as if they were a part of you and make a stable foundation for single-tooth crowns or larger bridges. Implant teeth act exactly like your teeth – and they also feel like it.
Replacing missing or failing teeth with implants has great benefits over the alternative options of a bridge or denture.
Implants look, function and feel like real teeth and produce an excellent cosmetic result - it’s usually impossible to tell the difference between implants and your own tooth. And once there, they become part of you. Apart from having regular check us you don’t have to worry about them.
Why is an implant better than a bridge for replacing a missing tooth?
In the past a bridge was the first option for replacing a missing tooth but implants are now the preferred option. When you replace a missing tooth with a bridge, you have to cut down the teeth on either side of the space. Later on, if one of the two teeth decays, it is very likely the bridge will have to be replaced. The decay may have weakened the tooth to the extent that it now is lost. In this way more teeth are lost over time.
An implant replaces a missing tooth in the most natural way and without damaging any of your remaining teeth. Therefore, an implant is a much more economical way to replace a missing tooth over time.
