Why Dental Implants Are the No. 1 Choice for Replacing Missing Teeth

Losing a tooth to disease or decay can be pretty distressing. After all, our smiles say a lot about us, and when even a single tooth is missing, it can take a real toll on our self-confidence. For years, replacing a missing tooth meant dealing with a denture or bridge. Even when these solutions satisfied the mechanical function of the missing tooth, they still didn’t do a lot to increase confidence, and they rarely replace the comfort and security that we take for granted with our natural teeth.

With those kinds of shortcomings, it’s easy to see why dentists — and patients — have sought other solutions when it came to replacing one or more missing teeth. And for many patients, dental implants turn out to be just what they’re looking for. But what is it about implants that makes them so popular — and often a preferable — alternative to dentures and bridges?

Benefits of dental implants

Sometimes, when a new product comes out, a lot of the hype is just that — hype. But when it comes to dental implants, the benefits are real. Here are the top 5 reasons why implants have become so popular.
