Enjoy A Complete, Beautiful Smile By Replacing Missing Teeth With Dental Implants
Missing teeth can cause significant problems in your mouth. For instance, you might struggle to enjoy the foods you used to be able to eat. You might hide your smile and struggle with interpersonal relationships. Even your talking can be affected.
On top of that, there are changes in your bone structure and face when you are missing teeth. Your jawbone loses mass, and your face may even take on an aged appearance. Your other teeth start to shift into the gap, which puts you at risk of losing them as well.
Fortunately, there’s something you can do to stop the damage. Getting dental implants puts a fully functional tooth into the gap, which helps restore the jaw and protects nearby teeth. The area is easier to keep clean and you can regain your confidence and smile.
Getting a dental implant is easier than you think!
First you have an evaluation so our dentists can ensure that you’re a good candidate for an implant. Advances in technology mean that even patients who were previously ruled out may be able to have this procedure.
You’ll have an implant placed in your jaw, and then an abutment added. Once everything is looking good, the dentist will create the artificial tooth and put it on the abutment.
It is a multiple-step process, but once you have the implant in place it is permanent and should last a lifetime. Simply practice good dental hygiene to keep the tooth clean and protect your gums and other teeth from bacteria.
Best of all, once you have your new tooth, you can resume talking and eating as you always have. Just avoid chewing hard foods that can damage your teeth.
