  • The strength of chewing with a denture accounts for only 1/20 of natural teeth. In contrast, the implant has the same strength of chewing as a natural tooth. Therefore, with an implant, you can chew hard food well.
  • Implants can be used for as long as 10 – 30 years depending on the care.
  • Implant has excellent esthetic function, since it looks and feels like a natural tooth.
  • With a bridge, your healthy adjacent teeth will be affected. An implant is placed only in the gap where the lost tooth was located; however, adjacent teeth are not damaged.
  • You can be relieved from the periodontal pain, discomfort, and bad breath that are related to wearing dentures.
  • An implant is permanent, since it is attached to the alveolar bone like a natural tooth.
  • There is no chance of the implant developing cavities because it is an artificial tooth.
  • If you wear dentures for a long time, your jawbone can deteriorate. In contrast, implant placement makes the bone strong and prevents it from being absorbed by the body.
  • With an implant, you can feel the temperature and texture of foods.
  • In the case of a full denture, it can be fixed firmly after the implant is placed; hence the absence of movement in the mouth.
