It is important to replace missing teeth
Missing teeth can be both embarrassing and troublesome. Each of your teeth performs a specific function. When you are missing one or more teeth, the function they once provided is transferred to adjacent teeth resulting in uneven wear and jawbone deterioration.Missing teeth can also alter the shape of your face and the strength of your bite as adjacent teeth slide into their place. From a cosmetic perspective, missing teeth can make your smile awkward and uncomfortable. This can result in hiding your smile, and feeling less confident in business and social interactions. This is where Dental Implants come in.
Dental implants are the best option to replace missing teeth
Dental implants are today’s best option for replacing missing teeth. They offer highly successful, long-lasting, and totally natural-looking artificial tooth replacements that actually become part of the jawbone and help maintain your oral health. The reason is that the titanium of which dental implants are made has the unique ability to fuse with living bone.
What is a dental implant?
In order to understand exactly what an implant is, you first have to picture a natural tooth, which essentially has two main parts: the crown, which is the part you see in the mouth above the gum line, and the root, which is inside the bone. A dental implant replaces just the root part of the missing tooth. The implant is then topped by a realistic-looking dental crown to complete the process.
