At Dogwood Dental we understand how important it is to have a healthy and confident smile. If you are missing a tooth or have a damaged tooth that needs to be replaced, single-tooth implants and bridges are excellent options to consider. Here are some benefits of each:
Single Tooth Implants:
- Natural appearance: Dental implants are designed to look and feel like your natural teeth, blending seamlessly with your smile.
- Solid, natural chewing: With dental implants, you can enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about discomfort or instability.
- Attached securely and permanently: Dental implants are anchored to your jawbone, providing a permanent and secure solution for missing teeth.
- Significantly reduces bone loss: When you lose a natural tooth, the jawbone can begin to deteriorate. Dental implants help to stimulate the bone, reducing the risk of bone loss.
- No negative impact on nearby teeth: Unlike bridges, which require support from adjacent teeth, dental implants stand alone, preserving the health and integrity of your surrounding teeth.
- Natural appearance: Dental bridges can be customized to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, creating a seamless smile.
- Solid, natural chewing: Bridges are designed to function like your natural teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with ease.
- Attached securely and permanently: Bridges are anchored to your natural teeth, providing a durable and reliable solution for missing teeth.
- Restores biting and chewing function: Bridges help to restore your bite and chewing function, improving your overall oral health.
- Can be cost-effective: Bridges are often more affordable than dental implants, making them a great option for patients on a budget.
