Dental implants replace missing teeth in the most natural way in terms of how they look and feel. Dental implants also have many other benefits, particularly when compared to other methods of tooth replacement. Here are three benefits to dental implants:

1. No other teeth are touched in the process. When replacing teeth with a traditional bridge, the dentist must alter other teeth to Dental Implantsrestore the tooth or teeth that are missing. This is because a traditional bridge is supported by crowns on adjacent teeth. The dentists has to grind these teeth down to prepare them for a crown. Dental implants do not need support from adjacent teeth.

2. Dental implants mean longevity. Traditional bridges may last five to seven years, and eventually they will need to be replaced. Dentures also can be lost or chipped and eventually will need replacement. With proper periodic adjustments, dental implants can last a lifetime.

3. Dental implants improve your quality of life. Dental implants restore the appearance of your smile back to the way it was before. They are the most comfortable option in tooth replacement. With dental implants, there is no need to worry about dentures moving around while eating, speaking, or smiling. Dental implants do not need to be removed or reapplied like dentures. This removes the need for messy adhesives. There is also no need to worry about what types of food you can or can't eat. Dental implants eliminate the anxiety and stress that can arise from having missing teeth and simplify your life.
