People can lose one or more teeth for a variety of reasons. Dental diseases such as tooth decay and gum disease can claim teeth, as well as oral trauma or injury. No matter what the cause of missing teeth, dental implants have become more and more popular as restorative measures.
It’s actually harmful to your oral health if you don’t replace lost teeth. When teeth go missing, the remaining teeth can shift out of position and cause additional problems for you, such as a misaligned bite and poorer oral hygiene.
Dental implants work for you by providing a sturdy tooth root replacement. The implant is surgically attached to the bone beneath the gum line, allowing for replacement teeth to be attached. This fusion allows the titanium implant to become one with you, resulting in a sturdy and comfortable solution.
Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth, which makes them an attractive fit for your smile. Since they don’t shift in the mouth, you can speak and smile without worry or embarrassment. This also means you can chew normally without discomfort. Dental implants also allow more of the tooth to be kept intact, which is better for you as well. Another advantage of dental implants over other restorative options is that they can last a lifetime with good oral care.
