Missing teeth can have a big impact on both your emotional well-being and your physical health. It restricts your diet and even impacts your speech. But at Barnes Family Dentistry, a healthy smile is only a consultation away. If you’re ready to learn more about replacing a missing tooth we suggest dental implants. This is a very effective way to replace missing teeth in a manner that closely resembles natural tooth roots. An artificial Titanium root is placed and fuses to the natural bone of your jaw and a custom-made crown is affixed to the implant in place of your missing tooth.
Benefits of dental implants
Dental implants are a long-term solution to missing teeth. If you’re a good candidate for this treatment, there are many benefits to look forward to.
- Convenience – Dental implants are cared for just like other teeth through brushing, flossing, and routine dental exams.
- Security – Since dental implants fuse to your bone, the custom crown will be steady, secure, and allow your diet to remain unrestricted.
- Bone retention – Replacing missing teeth supports the bone in order to prevent bone loss and other structural problems.
- Maintain your bite – An empty space in your mouth causes alignment issues as teeth shift and lead to wear and tear. By replacing a tooth with a dental implant, your teeth stay in place.
Dental implants are designed to look like natural teeth. We design them to match your tooth color and shape. It will not be obvious that you have a dental implant when you talk, eat, or smile. Plus, they’re not removable like partial dentures, so they’re very convenient and hassle-free.
