Chances are you have lost or know someone who’s lost a tooth. Accidents and oral diseases can lead to the loss of a natural tooth.
Dental implants are effective as replacement teeth.
The Importance of Dental Implants and Replacing Lost Teeth
They Help Maintain Good Oral Health
Losing a natural tooth or teeth disrupts a patient’s overall dental and facial structure. The gap from a missing tooth exposes the remaining teeth, causing them to shift and tilt every time you chew.
Dental implant surgery prevents long-term oral and other health problems such as:
· Abscesses and cavities
· Gum disease
· Loss of jawbone density
· Tooth enamel erosion
They Help Maintain Dental Comfort
The dental implant procedure also helps patients maintain dental comfort, making eating, brushing, and flossing easier. Even a single tooth missing can expose the remaining teeth, making them hypersensitive to heat and cold.
Dental implants can also correct speech impediments such as lisps, giving you the confidence and self-esteem to effectively communicate with others.
They Help Maintain an Attractive Smile
A picture-perfect smile is not as superficial as you may think.
White, healthy teeth prevent the emotional stress, loss of confidence, and self-esteem issues that can develop with dental imperfections.
Dental implants help boost a patient’s confidence and morale as they look exactly like natural teeth. Implants also restore the face’s natural shape making for a healthier and fuller countenance and smile.
