A missing or damaged tooth can make you self-conscious. While a partial denture or bridge may help, they’re also inconvenient. Luckily, there is a way to restore your smile and your confidence. There are lots of reasons why thousands are visiting their dentist to discuss dental implants.
A dental implant is fastened to your jawbone using a titanium screw. On top of the screw, a cap is placed. This cap is carefully molded and shaped to match your other teeth. You can choose the whiteness and shape to ensure that you’re happy with the end result. Adjustments are made as it’s placed to guarantee that it looks fabulous when in your mouth. It will look so natural that no one will know that it isn’t one of your natural teeth!
A partial bridge or denture is a temporary fix to a permanent problem. With a denture or other options, your jawbone may begin to deteriorate without a tooth to support it. Plus, you’ll be required to remove the denture and clean it regularly. A single tooth implant is a permanent way to replace a missing tooth. Instead of having to remove it for cleanings, simply brush and floss your implant as you do your other teeth. You can treat it just as you do your natural teeth.
With other tooth replacement options, maintenance is necessary. Depending on what you’ve chosen, you may need to have it adjusted or refitted. Some dentures may not be able to handle eating certain foods. A single tooth dental implant doesn’t have these issues. Because of the strength of the implant, you can continue eating your favorite foods without worrying about it affecting your dental apparatus. There’s less maintenance, making it a more convenient choice!
With so many reasons to choose dental implants why opt for anything else? If you’re missing a tooth, don’t hide your smile any longer. Instead, schedule an appointment with your dentist and get your grin back.
