1 Does Not Involve Neighboring Teeth
All other tooth replacement options involve either drilling on other teeth for fixed bridges and some removable partial dentures or using the other teeth for retention of removable appliances. Neighboring teeth may develop decay and fracture more easily or require root canal treatment in time.Dental Implants use a root shaped titanium screw that goes in the same area as the missing tooth root.
2 Stimulates Bone DevelopmentWhenever a tooth is lost, the bone begins to shrink as it no longer is stimulated by the tooth root during chewing. In fact the bone is stimulated negatively by chewing as pressure causes bone resorption. This bone loss can cause an unsightly situation and make restoring the area more difficult. Dental implants stimulate the bone through chewing.
3 Very StrongDental implants are made from a Titanium allow and are extremely strong.
4 Keeps Teeth From ShiftingA restored dental implant is both a place holder and a working partner. This keeps teeth from shifting out of place which can lead to food trapping, cavities, and gum disease.
5 Helps Distribute Chewing ForceMost people have between 28 and 32 teeth that distribute chewing forces evenly through the mouth. The back teeth do the majority of the power chewing while the front teeth are more involved in tearing food, but the entire set of teeth work in harmony. When teeth are missing theirs creates problems in speech, esthetics and harmony of the biting and chewing of food. In addition, missing teeth can lead to muscle imbalance and TMJ problems

7 Looks NaturalProperly placed dental implant crowns can be undetectable in your smile.

Implant parts have come down in cost up to 800% in some cases allowing doctors to keep the cost down for the patient In addition, the innovations in implant design are shortening the treatment time and improving the result.
