Dental Implant Placement in Auburn 

If you are debating if you should invest into a single tooth implant or a bridge to replace a tooth, take into consideration the following points:

Dental Implants Are Easy To Clean


Because a dental implant is not bonded or fixed to adjacent teeth life a bridge, they are very easy to clean.  You can brush and floss a dental implant just like you would a natural tooth making them very easy to keep clean.

Dental Implants Are Strong

Dental implants undergo a process called osseointegration.  Human bone actually grows around the titanium post of a dental implant and fuses to it.  This process makes a dental implant as strong as a healthy tooth providing the patient with a long term treatment option that requires little maintenance.

Dental Implants Are Life-like

A properly placed dental implant looks as real as the natural tooth next to it.  Your dentist will use a dental lab to create a beautiful, natural looking porcelain crown that matches the color and shape of your adjacent teeth perfectly.

Dental Implants Cost Less in the Long-Run

If you are looking at other options for tooth replacement, consider your long-term investment.  It is very rare that a dental implant needs to be replaced.  Although the up front cost may be more than a dental bridge (not much though), the long term investment is huge.  Dental bridges often need to be replaced.  They can develop a cavity on the tooth underneath the bridge causing the whole bridge to need replacement.  Because a dental implant is made up of titanium and porcelain, it cannot develop tooth decay.
