Thinking about the difference between an implant and another restoration option is kind of like thinking about the difference between a state of the art prosthetic leg and a peg leg. If you were faced with the choice, which would you choose? We have a feeling that the function and comfort of that prosthetic leg would make your decision a no brainer, even though the state of the art solution costs a bit more. The same thought process makes choosing a dental implant an easy decision.
You might be struggling with the idea of paying a little bit extra for a more high tech solution, but this is about more than just the newest technology. Choosing a dental implant is about choosing a restoration that will look, function, and feel like a natural tooth so you don’t feel like you have a peg leg of a tooth.
Why Does It Work?
Comparing a peg leg and a prosthetic leg is easy. It’s obvious which one is better for you and your body, but comparing an implant and a different restoration (think a bridge or partial) can be more difficult. A dental implant works better because it is as close to a natural tooth as you can get without having your natural tooth. The implant itself is placed directly into the jaw bone, just like a tooth root. The crown we place on top of the implant will look, feel, and function just like your natural tooth. No one will be able to tell the difference, not even you!
