Say Goodbye to Missing Teeth
A missing tooth is not only a blow to your confidence; it can affect your bone health. Having an area in your mouth that is not supporting a tooth can cause your jawbone to deteriorate over time, which can make your face appear sunken. To remedy your problem and put an end to possible future damage, consider opting for a dental implant.
Your implant consists of two parts: a titanium rod that is inserted into your jawbone and a crown-like artificial tooth that is fitted on top of the rod and fused in place.
Like A Natural Tooth, Only Better
Dental implants look and act just like the real thing. With a dental implant, you can:
- You can eat whatever you want: You don’t have to avoid anything problematic, like crunchy or sticky foods. Your implant can stand up to anything you like to eat.
- You can brush the implant: Unlike dentures, you don’t have to remove your implant and put it in a cleaning solution. Just brush your teeth like you normally would!
- You don’t need to use special creams or adhesives: Sometimes dental solutions like dentures can slip out of place and may need help from an adhesive. Because your implant has been fused to your jawbone, you don’t need to worry about it slipping out of place.
The best feature of a dental implant is its longevity: when properly cared for, a dental implant should last a lifetime. That’s something you may not be able to say about your natural teeth!
Dental bridges are another option for a missing tooth, because they help keep your teeth from shifting. A bridge is made up of an artificial tooth anchored by crowns. The crowns fit over existing teeth, while the artificial tooth sits where the missing tooth was. A bridge might be a better choice for you if your jawbone is not healthy enough to support the titanium rod of a dental implant.
