|A tooth is naturally durable and is meant to remain in your mouth permanently, but that does not always happen for a variety of reasons. You may end up losing a tooth after repeatedly chewing hard foods that cause it to crack, by participating in contact sports, or simply because you are pregnant and the increase in hormones affects your jawbone. Losing a tooth can affect your overall health in a myriad of ways; however, you can reclaim your health by replacing that tooth with a dental implant – the closest thing to your natural tooth.
Implant dentistry allows you to place an artificial tooth in the area of your missing natural tooth. Dental implants are ideal solutions for missing teeth because tooth loss can have far-reaching effects on your body in several ways:
Your implant dentist will help you to replace your missing tooth so that you can avoid these health problems. The first step of implant dentistry involves placing a titanium implant, which looks like a screw, in your jawbone. Then, a connecting piece will cover the implant. Finally, your dentist will create a tooth-like cap, called a crown, which will go on top of the connecting piece.
Dental implants are the best solutions for replacing missing teeth because they are meant to resemble your natural teeth, which means they are sturdy and are intended to be permanent. Do not allow a missing tooth to disrupt your ability to eat normally: Call our experienced team today to find out how we can help you to restore your tooth – and your health – long-term.
