After losing your teeth, you may be asking yourself if you should get dental implants. The short answer is yes, you should. To be clear, here are three types of people who could benefit from implants.
The Person Missing One Tooth
If you are missing a single tooth, that can lead to drifting of your remaining teeth, bone loss in your jaw, and additional tooth loss over time. By getting an implant-supported crown, you can complete your smile, prevent bone loss, and preserve your smile.
The Person Missing Multiple Teeth
The issues mentioned above are compounded when you are missing multiple teeth. A dental bridge can fill the gap in your smile, but it may not prevent bone loss or additional tooth loss down the road. An implant-supported bridge can give you strong teeth replacements and a secure smile.
The Person Missing a Row of Teeth
Traditional dentures do not feel or function like natural teeth. Implant-supported dentures, however, can restore your confident smile and put power back into your bite.
