It is true that in most cases a denture or bridge will bring back much of the form and function of your missing teeth. However, a natural tooth does a lot more than help you cut and grind food or make for nice smiles. It also plays an important role under your gum line where you can not see it.
Dental implants are the closest cousin to natural teeth. They are permanent false teeth anchored in place. They are very stable and you will be able to eat virtually anything with ease and comfort. Patients find that implants give them a more positive self-image and more confidence.
