Today's modern implant treatment can replace everything from a single missing tooth to a completely missing arch. Bridges and partial dentures address the short-term cosmetic problems of missing teeth, but do nothing to stop bone loss. Bridges also require that 2 or more teeth be prepared to serve as abutments (posts) for a bridge, leaving them at a much greater risk for cavities and endodontic failure. If the original abutment teeth fail, more healthy teeth must be sacrificed to serve as posts, while you continue to lose bone beneath the bridge. With implants, however, the healthy teeth are left alone. Dental implants, like natural teeth, also transmit chewing forces to the jawbone, which reduces bone loss. This is why many leading dental organizations now recognize dental implants as the standard of care for tooth replacement.
