Having to smile with a missing tooth can hinder one’s confidence to a large extent. If you’re looking to have a reliable replacement for your missing tooth, then dental implants could be the best option for you.
Dental implants are titanium studs that are inserted into the jawbone in place of the extracted teeth. They are hard, strong, and won’t break easily. A ceramic crown would be attached to the metal implant to act as a replacement tooth structure. Together, the metal stud and the ceramic crown replace an entire tooth (root to crown).
Whenever a tooth is extracted, the remaining teeth adjacent to and opposing tend to shift. This shifting may lead to problems for the teeth, gums, bones, and joints. The gaps can be problematic for cleaning, smiling, and eating. The quality and ease of chewing and how the mouth moves as a system is helped by replacing missing teeth.
