When it comes to missing teeth or damaged teeth, dentures and plates have tended to be the default option. But in recent years, dental implants have emerged as a popular alternative. As the technology has improved and the average cost of dental implants has decreased, more people are looking to improve both the appearance and functionality of their teeth by opting for dental implants.
Why opt for dental implants?
Though dentures and plates are still a viable option in many cases, there are a number of advantages in opting for implants over dentures. Perhaps the most obvious is that implants are directly attached to your mouth, and accordingly there isn’t the same risk of them falling out on a day-to-day basis. They also typically provide a more natural look
Dental implants are an effective long-term solution consisting of three components — along with the implant itself, there is a metal piece screwed into the implant called the abutment, and the dental crown.
Dental implants also come in a wider variety of forms and are more individualized to suit your mouth. They range from single-tooth replacements through to upper and lower arch replacements, and all the way to full mouth dental implants which can replace your teeth entirely.
