Improved Quality Of Life
Dental implants are designed to be a long-lasting solution for tooth loss and are cared for with brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, anchor a bridge, or hold dentures tightly in place. Dental implants also eliminate the need to use messy dental adhesives.
When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone begins to shrink away, or resorb and becomes increasingly brittle. This compromises the adjacent teeth and increases the chance of a changed appearance. Dental implants help to prevent or slow bone resorption, helping to preserve your natural facial contours.
What Is Single Tooth Replacement?
If you are missing one tooth in a given area of your mouth, your dentist may recommend that you consider one dental implant to replace the root of the missing tooth and an implant crown to rebuild your tooth in a beautiful and natural looking manner. An implant with an implant crown offers a long-lasting solution for a missing tooth and does not require anchorage to any adjacent teeth.
