Missing Teeth Solution
Replacing teeth with implants has several major advantages over traditional methods;
- Implants look, feel and function like natural teeth
- The procedure does not require adjacent teeth to be ‘cut back’
- The implant replaces the tooth root, which preserves the bone
- They prevent bone collapse and provide better long-term aesthetics
Implants provide an excellent way to aesthetically and functionally close the gap created by the loss of a single tooth. If a gap is left other teeth can move and tilt forward or erupt from above into the space, causing crowding and lengthening of remaining teeth.
In these cases too, implants provide an ideal alternative to conventional methods. The implants serve as additional supporting abutments for carrying a bridge and therefore eliminate the need to file down adjacent teeth to carry a crown.
