Replacing a Single Tooth
Dental implants have proven to be one of the best options for replacing missing teeth. The appliance has several advantages over other tooth replacement options. But why replace a missing tooth? What happens if a lost tooth is not replaced?
A person may lose a tooth due to several reasons. Tooth decay, gum problems and trauma are common causes for tooth loss. A missing tooth can affect your smile, chewing efficiency and social well-being. Research has shown that there is a link between oral plaque and cardiovascular diseases such as stroke and chronic diseases like diabetes.
When several teeth are lost, bone loss can affect facial support. There will be deepening of the facial folds giving an old age look.
When a tooth is lost, the neighboring teeth move into the space created. This causes misalignment, food lodgment and decay of the neighboring and opposing teeth. Loss of a tooth can create an imbalance in the whole arch. Hence it is important to replace lost teeth before the problems surface.
Why choose dental Implants?
Dental Implants have a close resemblance to its natural counterpart. They feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants not only transform your smile but they also help improve the quality of your life. Dental implants are the best alternative to natural teeth, because they replace both the root and the body of the tooth.Dental implants can replace single or several teeth.
With dental implants the neighboring teeth are not ground down and hence are protected. Dentists consider dental implants as the best method of teeth replacement because they preserve the jawbone and restore nearly 100% of your chewing ability.
