Most dentists agree that a dental implant is the best choice for replacing a missing tooth. The reasons so many dentists consider dental implants the gold standard include:

  • Natural function
  • Natural appearance
  • Longevity
  • Easy upkeep

Let’s discuss when dental implants are no longer a choice but a necessity.

When Dental Implants in Huntsville, AL Are the Only Option

Tooth replacement is always necessary to guard against future tooth loss and oral health complications when you have missing teeth.

However, not every patient wants dentures or partials. In some cases, dentures and partials are not even options due to gum health.

Of course, dentures are time-tested, but there are drawbacks to the longevity of wear, the eventual need for adhesives, relines, and replacement.  If you want an easy solution that skips all these extras, dental implants are the only option.

A dental bridge is another tooth replacement option that relies on crowning healthy teeth to support a bridge of artificial teeth—usually one or two. If you do not have healthy enough teeth to support a bridge, or if you do not want the extra maintenance steps—special brushing and the use of a floss threader—dental implants, again, are the only solution.
