Why Should I Choose a Dental Implant Instead of a Bridge?

Dental Implants vs Bridges | Edina MN Dentist

Losing a tooth can leave you with many questions. Is it necessary to replace a missing tooth? What is the best for my health? My appearance? 

At 50th and France Dental Care, we recognize that each patient is different, and we will recommend what will work best for you. For most healthy patients, dental implants provide a solution that offers the best long-term results both for your health and your appearance. We offer dental implant treatment in our Edina dental office and enjoy a high success rate.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Bone retention
  • Natural appearance
  • Stability
  • No dietary restrictions

Each dental implant crown we create will match your existing teeth and smile, making it a highly esthetic solution to a missing tooth. Because there are no dietary restrictions, you can enjoy a healthy, varied diet that supports good overall health. Bone retention supports the health of your remaining teeth and maintains your facial structure.

Dental implants are not for everyone. You must have good oral health to ensure success and be free of gum disease and decay. If you need some help getting on track, talk to us.

Sufficient bone is also necessary to support your dental implant. Additional procedures such as bone grafting may be necessary for implant success.

You must have the ability and motivation to properly care for your dental implant. Good home care, regular dental exams, and professional dental cleanings are all necessary for the success and longevity of your dental implant.

If you would like an alternative to dental implants, we offer those too – both dentures and dental bridges can complete your smile.
