3-Tooth Solution For A 1-Tooth Problem?

If you are missing one of your teeth and weighing your tooth replacement options, consider a dental implant from Future of Dentistry.

Dental implants are the state of the art in dentistry. Dental bridges have been used for many years, but they have some downsides:

  • They are a 3-tooth solution to a 1-tooth problem—the adjacent teeth must be prepped and crowned to hold the replacement (floating) tooth.
  • It is hard to properly clean the small areas under the bridge.
  • A dental bridge does not safeguard against bone recession at the extraction site.

Why is a dental implant superior to a bridge?

  • It is a 1-tooth solution to a 1-tooth problem.
  • It is usually stronger.
  • Will reduce the risk of bone recession because it replaces the tooth root.
  • It is usually easier to keep clean which results in a lower risk of decay.
  • They last longer.
  • Dental implants can support a denture or partial denture.

Dental implants are state-of-the-art in tooth replacement at Future of Dentistry. Patients come from throughout Greater Boston and Merrimack Valley for implants, bridges, and other restorative dentistry procedures. Call today!
