If you look in the mirror and smile but are dissatisfied with what you see due to a missing tooth, know that you do not have to be stuck with that missing tooth forever. On the contrary, you can replace it with something that is intended to last forever – just as your normal tooth was designed to do. Whether you want to feel more confident around your relationship partner or your business partner, dental implants are proven to give you your smile and, thus, your peace of mind back.
You may have lost your tooth in an accident, or it may have been extracted because it was unhealthy. Whatever the reason, the gap in your mouth can cause you to feel self-conscious – especially if the open space is visible when you smile or talk to other people.
If you have lost multiple teeth, this especially can affect your appearance drastically and make you look older. In this situation, your jawbone’s height and width can decrease, as there are no teeth there to stimulate the bone. Normal chewing is the force that helps your bone to maintain its strength and form, and if you cannot chew normally because you have lost a tooth, your bone will suffer. In addition, the longer you wait after you have lost your tooth, the more challenging it becomes to replace it.
…implants will help you to restore lost teeth efficiently so that you can look vibrant and have a renewed self-confidence.
However, dental implants will help you to restore lost teeth efficiently so that you can look vibrant and have a renewed self-confidence. This is because implants are built to act like your natural teeth, so they will stimulate your bone and keep your mouth healthy in addition to making your smile complete again.
Dental Implant treatment begins with your dentist placing a titanium implant in your lower or upper jawbone. The dentist then will attach an abutment to this implant; this piece, which serves as a connector between your implant and an artificial tooth cap, can be made out of porcelain, gold or titanium. Lastly, that tooth cap, better known as a crown, will go on top of the abutment. It is typically made of porcelain fused to metal and is tooth-colored.
You can regain your confidence at home, in the workplace or even at the grocery store. With dental implants, you truly can restore your smile. Get in touch with us today to learn how we can help you to get your tooth and your peace of mind back. Call 918-779-3399 to schedule your consultation.
