A tooth lost to trauma or disease affects your smile on several different levels. Missing teeth compromise your appearance and your ability to eat and speak as you should. And, empty spaces in your smile create more places for plaque and tartar to accumulate and give your remaining teeth room to drift out of alignment. But your tooth also exerts pressure on your jawbone as you bite and chew your food, which keeps the bone healthy and strong. Without the tooth and its root, your jawbone can begin to deteriorate.
Dental implants are an extremely popular forms of tooth replacement. The prosthetic teeth are attached to titanium posts that have been placed directly into the jawbone. This process makes your implants very stable and as your jawbone grows around the implant, it becomes stronger. Additionally, your implants can be brushed and flossed along with your regular teeth. Implants are useful for replacing a single tooth, or can be made to hold a denture or a bridge.
Dental implants look, and more importantly feel like a natural tooth. An implant is wonderful way to repair your smile and restore the functions of your teeth.
