Pros and cons of dental implants

For some people, dental bridges or dentures are simply not a viable option due to lack of comfort or gagging reflexes. In addition, a significant advantage of dental implants is that they don't require adjacent teeth to be ground down to hold your new replacement tooth (or teeth) in place, as in the case of a dental bridge. As such, all healthy teeth enamel is maintained. To receive dental implants you must have healthy gums and adequate bone support in order to receive the dental implant posts. Excellent oral hygiene, including regular dentist visits, are a must if you are considering having dental implants. 

The disadvantage is the cost, there being a significant investment in your dental health if you are going to have dental implants. That said, they are the best tooth replacement solution on offer if you have one or two missing teeth and your other adjacent teeth are relatively healthy.
