Joe Isaacson: When it comes to dental implants,
the value of the dental implant really is because you don’t have to touch the adjacent
teeth. Bridges work well, however though they have
to use adjacent teeth for them to work. They have a tendency to wear out and they’re
harder to take care of. When you have a dental implant, it’s placed
independent from any other teeth, so they’re easy to maintain. They do last longer, and they work just as
well because they’re not attached to any other adjacent teeth.
