Can Implants Prevent Bone Resorption?
More on Implants and Bone Resorption:
“Bone needs stimulation to stay healthy. Because dental implants fuse to the bone, they stabilize it and prevent further bone loss. Resorption is a normal and inevitable process in which bone is lost when it is no longer supporting or connected to teeth. Only dental implants can stop this process and preserve the bone.”
(97%+ success after 10 years, no risk of decay, no additional risk of abutment teeth developing abscesses as with 3-unit bridges.
(I consider these to be a temporary measure as they will not prevent bone resorption.)
