Preserve Your Natural Teeth
Some tooth replacement options put your natural teeth at risk. Dental bridges can be a good option in some situations, but they also require us to remove natural tooth enamel to make crowns that support the bridge.
Partial dentures also rely on your natural teeth for support. Some partial dentures can scrape and wear out the enamel on your natural teeth. All partial dentures contribute to the accumulation of plaque against the natural teeth, which can lead to cavities. And tooth replacements that don’t replace the root contribute to bone loss, which can put natural teeth at risk.
Dental implants support themselves and don’t contribute to plaque accumulation against your natural teeth. If anything, they help your natural teeth by filling a gap and providing support.
