For many people, a missing tooth can significantly decrease their overall quality of life. It can cause social anxiety, personal physical discomfort, and low self-esteem. Losing a tooth because of an accident or other mishap can be discouraging. It may leave you unsure of what to do next. Thankfully, dental implants can be the solution to restore lost teeth!
Dental implants can restore both the functionality and aesthetic of your smile. Dental implants are considered to be the closest restorative dentistry option to a natural tooth because they have both an artificial tooth root and tooth crown.
The synthetic tooth root is typically made of a special alloy. The artificial tooth root is inserted into your jawbone to fill the missing tooth. Usually, when a tooth is missing, your jawbone starts to deteriorate. A dental implant restores support in your jawbone, helping your jaw to stay strong and healthy.
A porcelain crown is then placed over the synthetic tooth root, making your dental implant look like a real tooth. With an artificial tooth root and crown, this replacement tooth functions just like your natural teeth. It offers you full capability of your mouth again.
Dental implants can also be used to provide greater stability for dentures. The dental implants act as a solid anchor point for your dentures, which helps reduce denture slippage. You shouldn’t have to worry about your dentures falling out! Talk to us about implant-supported dentures today!
