If you’ve lost one or more tooth, you may have worries about showing off your smile. Losing a tooth can shake your confidence and you may be uncomfortable with smiling. Luckily, there may be a solution for you. Dental implants are a tooth replacement option that is both durable and long-lasting and can help you feel comfortable dazzling people with your smile once again.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants consist of a titanium screw that is implanted into the gums and fused to the jawbone and then capped off with a dental crown. The dental crown can be color-matched to the rest of your teeth, which will look natural enough that no one will even know you were missing a tooth in the first place.
Dental implants are easy to care for and when they are properly cared for, they can last for years. All that needs to be done is you must floss and brush daily, just like you would a normal tooth. Daily brushing and flossing paired with your normal dental checkups are sure to help your implant last a long time without any issues.
Dental implants also function just like a normal tooth and restore any biting ability that you may have struggled with while missing a tooth. There are no restrictions on what you can chew with your implant and you can once again eat any of your favorite foods that you might have had to avoid while missing a tooth.
Implants can also help to prevent facial sagging in the future. Facial sagging could be caused by the deterioration of your jawbone and with dental implants, you’re restoring stimulation to the gums which helps stop deterioration since the implant is fused into the jawbone.
