3-Tooth Solution For A 1-Tooth Problem?

Alexandria cosmetic dental and tooth implantsIf you are missing one of your teeth and weighing your tooth replacement options, consider a dental implant from The Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria.

Dental implants are the state of the art in dentistry. Dental bridges have been used for many years, but they have some downsides:

  • They are a 3-tooth solution to a 1-tooth problem—the adjacent teeth must be prepped and crowned to hold the replacement tooth.
  • It is hard to properly clean the small areas under the bridge.
  • A dental bridge does not safeguard against bone recession at the extraction site.
  • Why is a dental implant superior to a bridge?
  • It is a 1-tooth solution to a 1-tooth problem.
  • It is usually stronger.
  • Will reduce the risk of bone recession because it replaces the tooth root.
  • It is usually easier to keep clean which results in a lower risk of decay.
  • They last longer.
  • Dental implants can support a denture or partial denture.

Dental implants are state-of-the-art in tooth replacement at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry in Alexandria. Patients come here for implants, bridges, and other restorative dentistry procedures. Call today!
