In addition to negatively impacting the appearance of your smile, missing teeth can lead to a number of serious health concerns. Gum irritation, infection, bite problems from shifting teeth, and additional tooth loss can all result from the gap left behind from a missing tooth. A dental implant is essentially a replacement tooth that can allow you to chew and speak again with ease while also improving the beauty of your smile.
If you are seeking a natural-looking restoration for one or more missing teeth, dental implants can provide unparalleled support and stability compared to traditional dentures or bridges. As an added benefit, dental implants are custom-designed for each patient and can produce results that blend seamlessly with the rest of your smile. Since the key to the success of dental implants depends upon a titanium post that serves as the new tooth’s root, ideal candidates must have sufficient jawbone density to receive the implant.
