Dental Implants in Woodstock, ON
Advantages of a Dental Implant vs. a Bridge
- Strong and natural-looking tooth
- Helps preserve the surrounding bone
- More cost-effective in the long term
- Replacing a single tooth with a dental implant is the option most dentists and patients prefer because it gives you a strong and natural-looking tooth without sacrificing the health of adjacent teeth.
A dental implant is placed in the jawbone and acts just like the root of a tooth. After allowing time to heal, a porcelain or ceramic crown is placed on top of the implant. The result is a replacement tooth that looks, acts and feels like a natural tooth. The implant also helps preserve the surrounding bone.
A conventional dental bridge is cemented onto the two neighboring teeth. The supporting teeth must be modified or shaved down, and as a result they are more susceptible to gum recession and decay. With a bridge, the bone beneath the artificial tooth will deteriorate over time, which can cause a cosmetic defect.
If you have a dental bridge that is failing or needs replacement, an implant may still be an option for you.
