The dental implant is probably the best option for someone with missing teeth, because you're giving the patient something back that they're missing. Although there are different options to replace teeth, the benefits of placing an implant goes far and beyond just a tooth back in the mouth, because you can give a patient a denture, they have teeth back in their mouth, but the function of that denture is inferior to an implant retained denture or a implant supported tooth because now you have function and stability.
Whereas with something like a denture, we know your bone is going to resorb over the years. You're going to have to get that denture replaced. The benefit of the implant is it keeps the bone stimulated. So the amount of bone that's lost over the years is a lot less than someone who goes through a route of a denture or even a dental bridge, because you have manipulating two teeth just to replace an open spot, but that open spot still has no stimulation under it. So you, again, run into problems down the line of bridges having to be replaced, bridges breaking, whereas the implant, if that implant integrates on a patient and they are a candidate for, it's not going anywhere, it's not moving. And that's really the ideal situation, in my opinion, for anybody because it literally replaces or gives you something back that you're missing.

Natural-Looking Dental Restorations Give You a Gorgeous Smile
While dental bridges can restore the look of lost teeth, they don’t stop the bone loss that comes with it. As an alternative to a bridge, dental implants are small titanium posts that are placed in your jaw. They stimulate the bone much like natural tooth roots, preserving your oral health and your facial structure. You won’t have to worry about a “sunken-face” look that can happen when you lose teeth.
