According to studies, millions of people are missing at least one tooth. Although the criteria for qualifying for a dental implant were strict in the past, advancements in dentistry and implant therapy have made things easier.
Below are the common dental issues resolved through implants:
Dental implants are made of biocompatible titanium. Over time, they fuse with your natural bone tissue becoming strong and stable enough to hold a crown.
Restoring your missing tooth with an implant has obvious benefits including the following:
Dental implants support crowns that are customized for every patient. This allows them to blend with the surrounding natural teeth. Therefore, no one will know that you have a missing tooth and you can smile and talk with confidence.
Since they replace the root of the tooth, implants function like your natural teeth. Anchored inside your jawbone, they offer stability and allow you to chew food better and speak clearly.
The gap created by a missing tooth is a fostering ground for bacteria. This increases your risk for periodontitis and cavities. The surrounding teeth are also likely to move into this gap and cause malocclusion.
Filling this space with an implant helps improve your bite, restores your smile, and prevents the adjacent teeth from shifting.
A missing tooth can cause jawbone degradation. This causes the gum tissues and your cheeks to sink, causing your face to sag and look aged. An implant helps fill up this area and maintains your youthful appearance.
