Dental Implants to Replace Several Missing Teeth
Replacing a single missing tooth with an implant has the advantage of removing the need to grind down adjacent teeth as you would to place a bridge. Occasionally, this grinding process can lead to the need for further treatment such as root canal therapy on these prepared teeth. Bridges that are not kept clean can result in decay under the bridge and result in further tooth loss. Remember, dental implants can’t get decay.
