Dental Implants

 

Many people lose teeth due to poor dental health and gum disease. Leaving the space of the missing tooth can leave you with some consequences such as:

  • . The teeth adjacent to your missing tooth can change position to fill the gap
  • . The loss of your missing tooth’s root can cause your jawbone to shrink, making your face appear prematurely older. This may also affect the pressure on the teeth when chewing, and have an impact on the surrounding muscles and joints, resulting in pain and other symptoms such as headaches.
  • . A missing tooth in the front of your mouth can affect your smile and your self-confidence.

A dental implant takes the place of the missing tooth’s root. Then a crown is attached to the implant to form the missing tooth. One or more implants can be placed depending on the size of the gap and number of missing teeth. These would then be restored with a bridge.
