Loss of teeth can cause serious problems in the mouth and throughout the body. After teeth are lost, other teeth begin to shift. This raises the risk of tooth decay and gum disease by forming pockets where food and bacteria can become trapped. According to research, poor oral health may raise the risk of heart disease. Because tooth loss can place extra stress on the jaw, TMJ may develop. According to The jaw bone may also deteriorate and increase the risk of further tooth loss. Although dentures and bridges can be used to replace missing teeth, they can also present problems that dental implants avoid, such as inconvenience and more difficult dental hygiene.

Dental implants provide a superior tooth loss solution that is permanent and simple to maintain. Although dental implants can replace single missing teeth, many patients choose multiple dental implants and full mouth dental implants as alternatives to partial dentures and full mouth dentures, respectively. After implants have been placed and have fused with the jaw bone, they can be used to support permanent crowns or anchor partial dentures. Unlike dental bridges, implants do not require grinding down neighboring teeth during placement. When used to anchor partial dentures, dental implants eliminate risks of slippage during meals and social interaction.
