Dental Implants: Advantages and Disadvantages



As our life span increases, a permanent dental replacement like implants is increasingly important as we get older. While dentures and removable bridges are usually loose and unstable, implants provide you with dental replacements that are both natural looking and very functional.

In addition, implants look much better, and feel better, than traditional removable bridges, and offer the same force for biting as bridges that are fixed in place.

Finally, implants will last your lifetime.


Implants are a major investment and not without risk. The extensive use of implants can cost thousands of dollars to achieve a great result. It is also a very time consuming procedure when having many implants placed.

As with similar types of surgery, bruising and minor swelling might also develop shortly after the procedure. The crown (false tooth placed on top) will often need to be replaced in ten to fifteen years.
