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.
What are dental implants?
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).
Why is it important to replace an extracted tooth?
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.
How can a dental implant help you?
- Since the implant fully restores a tooth, it will prevent the teeth from drifting from their positions.
- The aesthetics of your smile will return to normal. Its visual resemblance to a natural tooth is just amazing.
- An implant is long-lasting. Regular professional cleanings, brushing and flossing the teeth, and avoiding biting hard substances will make sure you keep your implants for many years.
