Tooth Replacement At Its Finest
Whether you are missing one tooth or many, it is having an effect on your oral health. When missing teeth are not replaced for an extended period of time it can cause damage to your remaining natural teeth and your jaw bone.
Replace Your Missing Teeth
If you leave your teeth missing for too long it can cause unnecessary stress on your surrounding teeth because they are taking on the stress that would normally go to the tooth, or teeth, that are missing. Also, when a tooth is missing for too long then bone loss can occur in your jaw bone. Missing teeth can also affect your facial structure and appearance making some people look older than they actually are. If you’d like to avoid these things from happening to you, it’s time to start seriously considering your dental replacement options.
All About Dental Implants
Think of dental implants as artificial tooth roots, similar in shape to screws. When dental implants are placed in your jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. They become a sturdy base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns.
A connector – known as an abutment – is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crown. The crown is custom-made to match your natural teeth.
Modern dental implants have been used successfully for over 30 years. They are the strongest devices available to support replacement teeth – and even better, they allow these new teeth to feel, look and function naturally.
