The best option for tooth replacement

Brought to you by Dr. Todd Gifford, Gifford Family Dental - Dental INSIDER -


Dr. Todd Gifford, Gifford Family DentalIn terms of aesthetics, patient satisfaction and successful outcomes, dental implants are your best option for replacing missing or badly damaged teeth.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is carefully inserted into your jaw and is able to support a single tooth, a multi-unit bridge or even a full denture. Implants are for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to conditions such as periodontal disease, a traumatic injury or decay and also for replacing congenitally missing teeth.

The American Society of Implant & Reconstructive Dentistry (ASIRD) is a nationwide not-for-profit association dedicated to educating consumers on the value of dental implants and the importance of choosing an experienced surgeon and dentist team recognized for having a collaborative relationship to ensure optimal results.

Patients of ASIRD surgeon/dentist teams describe dental implant treatment as much better than fixed bridges or removable dentures. They also report being more confident in public situations because of the comfort and security implants offer.

The initial cost for an implant is typically more than a fixed bridge or denture. However, because of longevity and minimal maintenance requirements, an implant costs less in the long run while delivering a substantially better quality of life and health for the patient.
