Do you suffer from the discomfort of a missing tooth or teeth? Oftentimes, missing a tooth in the visible esthetic area can impact a person’s confidence while speaking and smiling. Although missing a less visible tooth presents less esthetic concern, it can have a negative effect on your chewing ability or may cause adjacent teeth to sift position, thus creating new places for plaque and tarter to build up as well as the loss of bone and placing more stress on your remaining teeth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are often an ideal option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
