Why have dental implants become so popular?
Implant tooth replacement has become necessary to increase overall health and comfort in a population that is extending its lifespan. Implants can provide people with highly stable dental replacements that are both functional and attractive.
Many types of implants do not rely on adjacent teeth for their support, which can reduce the amount of stress the rest of your dentition is put under. This is very important for people who suffer from gum disease, as implants may be the only good option, as the remaining teeth are not strong enough to support removable dentures or fixed bridges.
