Are dental implants the best way to replace a missing tooth?
If you’re missing teeth or need an extraction, you have probably spent some time worrying about replacing your missing tooth. After all, a missing tooth is not only unattractive but also detrimental to your dental health.
Certain stereotypes come along with missing teeth, whether they are fair or not. Leaving a gap in your smile can cause people to draw certain conclusions about you even if they are not true! Even more important than your appearance is the fact that missing teeth cause problems with your bone, your bite, and put your other teeth at risk.
How long have dental implants been around and how do they work?
Dental implants have been around for decades, but in recent years, advancements have helped more people have dental implants than ever before. Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants is one of the most convenient ways to restore your smile and protect your health.
Dental implants work a lot like your natural teeth because they integrate with your bone. That integration helps to retain the bone that normally recedes after tooth loss, just like your natural teeth help to retain your jawbone.
