What Is A Dental Implant?
Dental Implants are the best way to replace missing teeth or ensure a stable fit with either an implant-supported denture or an implant-supported dental bridge. A dental implant is a titanium post that is carefully inserted into your jawbone and acts like the root of a tooth. After sufficient healing time, the post will be secure in the bone. Once healed, an artificial tooth can be attached. Many people find that an implant looks and feels no different than their natural teeth.
Why Replace A Missing Tooth?
Spaces from missing teeth can occur for many reasons such as; accidents, congenitally or naturally missing teeth, decay or periodontal disease. If you are considering your options for replacing missing teeth, implants are often the best treatment. Implants act and feel just like natural teeth, have the best patient satisfaction and comfort, and are relatively easy to care for and keep clean.
If you have any missing teeth, it can put you at a higher risk of developing issues with your bite that can lead to jaw pain, headaches and excessive wearing of your remaining teeth.
Remaining teeth tend to drift or tip into the space left by a missing tooth. This can further complicate your bite and make it harder for you to clean your teeth effectively.
You may also have difficulty with chewing and pronunciation, depending on where you have missing teeth. You may not be happy with your smile and lose confidence if you are missing teeth in an area that is visible to others, such as in the front of the mouth.
Missing teeth can also change your appearance and make your face look more hollow and sunken. The longer you have missing teeth, the more the bone and tissues will deteriorate in the area, and you may need to have additional procedures to build the bone back up in the area before an implant can be placed.
Why Choose A Dental Implant?
A dental implant addresses all of the issues mentioned above, which is why it is considered the best tooth replacement option available.
