When a patient loses a tooth, a dental implant is put into place to fill the gap. This helps to not only improve the patient’s cosmetic appearance, it also helps ensure they can chew and speak properly. If you are missing teeth, a dental implant may be an ideal option for you, even if you’re only missing a single tooth. Dental implants can help give you your confidence back, and help you smile freely once more.
Dental implants are an excellent choice both for their aesthetic appeal and their easy implantation. Unlike bridgework, dental implants don’t require healthy portions of surrounding teeth to be removed when put into place. They can also help to minimize receding gums and bone loss that can occur with dentures and traditional bridgework. Dental implants are permanent replacements for your regular teeth, so you will need to ensure that you continue regular oral hygiene practices in order to care for them, and regular exams are a must.
