Your Dental Treatment Questions


Why should I get dental implants?


Dental implants create a beautiful smile – the smile you deserve! You'll find renewed confidence in eating, speaking, and sharing your smile with the world. Dental implants also:


  • Make you look younger by providing internal facial structure
  • Prevent bone loss, which occurs when teeth are missing
  • Keep your healthy teeth safe by reducing stress
  • Keep your other teeth in correct position
  • Free you to eat whatever you want to, whenever you want to
  • Can increase your sense of taste
  • Free you to speak and laugh with confidence
  • Offer a long-term smile solution
  • Improve your quality of life



What are the benefits and drawbacks of a traditional bridge?


While a traditional bridge looks good and improves oral function, it does not have the full benefits of dental implants. For instance:


  • To place a bridge, healthy teeth must be altered
  • This can pose a risk to the attachment teeth
  • A bridge does not stop bone loss
  • A bridge may last only five to ten years
  • Some bridges contain metal, thus detracting from your natural smile



What is the difference between fixed bridges and overdentures?


A fixed bridge and overdentures are attached to dental implants. Fixed bridges are stationery and cannot be removed, whereas overdentures are removable.
