Missing one or more teeth is not only frustrating from an aesthetic point of view, but also from a functional one. When a patient doesn’t have a full set of teeth, the smile is incomplete, but missing one or multiple teeth also makes it difficult to eat and even, in some instances, communicate.
Missing teeth also places greater stress and strain on the remaining teeth. When you lose a tooth, the bone density of the surrounding area—whether in the jaw or skull—degrades as time goes by, which can cause further difficulty down the road.
One of the best ways to preserve bone growth and density in the jaw while also maintaining a beautiful, whole smile is through the use of dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are metal inserts that support a dental prosthetic device, such as a dental crown or bridge. Implants are surgically inserted and designed to take the place of a regular tooth. The skull and jawbones receive added bone density, strength, and support from your teeth.
When a tooth falls out or has to be removed, the bone density around the area of the missing tooth begins to degrade. That can lead to serious issues. A dental implant functions as the root of a tooth, promoting bone growth and strength.
Dental implants support the prosthetics that restore your smile, enable you to eat and communicate more easily, and are durable, lasting many years.
