There’s no need to try to conceal a missing tooth when you can have dental implants. There are many reasons why people might be missing teeth, and it isn’t just from poor oral hygiene. No matter the reason for tooth loss, consider dental implants to permanently replace your missing teeth and preserve your oral health.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants actually take the place of your missing tooth. A metal implant is surgically implanted into the jawbone and replaces the tooth’s root. Then, an artificial tooth called a crown is attached to the implant, and this crown blends in with your existing teeth. Once you have healed from the implant surgery, you can use your new implant exactly the same way as you would with your natural teeth.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are used and cleaned just like your natural teeth. Since they are a permanent addition to your mouth, there is no need to remove the implant and clean it before placing it back in your mouth. You can still brush and floss normally, as implants do not require any special cleaning. No one would know you had an implant unless you told them.
Implants can help restore your confidence in your oral health as well. When a permanent tooth is lost, the jawbone can actually change shape and cause harm to the structure of your mouth and stability of your bite. Dental implants replace the root from the missing tooth, preserving your jawbone’s structure and making sure your teeth remain securely in place.
