Although dental implants may sometimes have a higher initial cost, when all the ongoing expenses or other treatments options are added up, most people would agree that dental implants are more than worth it!
When you contrast the time investment that dental implant therapy requires versus the repeated practice visits required for adjustments, special cleanings and replacements for partials, bridges and dentures, it is easy to imagine how much better life can be with dental implants.
What are the consequences of Oral Bone Loss?
The loss of hard (bone) and soft (gum) tissues may result in
- Changed appearance
- Additional tooth loss
Missing tooth creates a bony defect in the jaw
If left untreated, you may experience additional bone loss, which can lead to additional bone loss.
Throughout time, untreated bone loss may create a significantly changed facial appearance and loss of normal function.
How is Oral Bone loss treated?
Dental implants have been shown to slow the bone resorption process. Alternative therapies do not provide this important benefit.
Crown & Bridge vs. Implant / Crown
Replacing your missing teeth with a fixed bridge treatment option versus dental implant solutions may require permanent changes to adjacent natural teeth. To create a fixed bridge to replace a single missing tooth, your dentist must grind down adjacent healthy teeth to support a fixed bridge. This may significantly compromise the life expectancy of the supporting teeth due to the permanent changes to the tooth structure.
Additionally, there are other risk factors such as bacteria access to the supporting teeth, which can lead to dental decay and gum disease, as well as possible oral bone and tissue loss.
Unlike a fixed bridge, replacing a single missing tooth with dental implants limits the compromise to the surrounding natural teeth.

Implant retained dentures are secured in place onto two or more dental implants by attachments that connect to the implant. The attachments allow you to have control over when your teeth are removed for easy daily care.
Implant bar supported dentures are secured to a custom support bar with clip attachments placed in your replacement teeth. The attachments allow you to have control over when your teeth are removed for easy daily care.
Implant supported fixed bridge are replacement teeth secured in place by screws on top of the foundation provided by dental implants. This option is fixed and only your dentist has control over when your replacement teeth can be removed.
