Crowns and bridges alone are becoming old fashioned dental restorations with dental implants a clearly superior alternative…
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry the number of Americans with dental implants is estimated to be about three million and rising with a long term success rate of over 95% and Australia is increasingly following suit. Decay and gum disease often contribute to the failure of fixed bridgework which is why implants are becoming a more popular solution. Statistics show that within 5-7 years, a 30% failure rate occurs in teeth next to a fixed bridge or removable partial dentures eliminating reliance on neighbouring teeth. Dental implants are a more stable alternative for missing teeth and they do not sacrifice any part of your existing tooth structure.
