Yes, it’s important to consider a dental implant for missing tooth because it replaces a single tooth without sacrificing the health of neighbouring teeth. Other common dental treatments like tooth-supported fixed bridge require adjacent teeth be ground down to support the cemented bridge.
Also, dental implant is more aesthetic and easier to clean than a bridge. Dental bridges can cause receding of gum around the bridge and leaves a visible defect when the metal base or collar of the bridge becomes exposed. This is not the case with dental implant since they integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
