For what conditions may dental implants be the best solution?

Dental imlants may be the best solution for the following reasons:

  • To replace missing teeth. Especially in cases where the posterior teeth (behind the canines) have been extracted and the only solution would be a partial denture.
  • When a single tooth is missing, an implant supported crown will preserve the adjacent natural teeth by avoiding the need to prepare them.
  • For stability and retention of overdentures in patients with severe bone loss. These patients suffer due to severely redused chewing efficiency. Implants offer a reliable solution and dramatically improve the chewing capability.
