The advantages of dental implants are :
* Tooth structure is preserved because there is no need to cut down adjacent teeth for conventional bridgework.
* Long-term studies on implants conclude that restorations on implants last for a longer time than conventional restorations on teeth.
* Implant overdentures improve biting, chewing efficiency and speaking due to improved support, stability and retention in comparison to loose fitting dentures.
* Implants preserve the adjacent bone on edentulous patients who loose faster bone when they use conventional full dentures.
