Dental implants are widely regarded as one of the biggest steps forward in dentistry in the last half century. They are available from Vanguard Dental Group in Derry NH.
In the past, if a patient had a missing or severely damaged tooth, the only options were dental bridges or dentures. These days, dental implants have proven to be superior to dental bridges. They can also anchor dentures for some patients.
A tooth implant provides many critical advantages over a dental bridge or dentures:
Longevity – Dental implants are heavy-duty and permanent, meaning with proper care they can last ten years or more.
Seamless – Fabricated to have the same shape, size and color of the original tooth, the implant will blend seamlessly with all the other teeth. If the original tooth had aesthetic issues, these can generally be fixed with the implant crown.
Function – A dental implant functions like a natural tooth allowing for normal eating and speaking.
Convenience – Unlike dentures, no adhesives, rinsing, or removal is needed.
Independent – Like the missing tooth, the dental implant is treated individually. No damaging of adjacent teeth is required, as with dental bridges. This independence allows nearby teeth to remain intact. Cleaning is easier than with most dental bridges which can require the threading of floss under and around the artificial tooth.
