If you are missing one or more teeth you certainly need to know your options for filling the gaps in your teeth. Gaps in your teeth cause more than dental health issues, they can also cause low self-esteem.
Dental implants are frequently the best option for replacing missing teeth and restoring smiles. Dental implants use an artificial ‘tooth root’ made from titanium, that is placed into the jaw to hold the replacement tooth. Most dentists feel that dental implants are better than traditional bridges because they don’t need the surrounding teeth for support.
Dental implants are the cosmetic restoration of choice for both aesthetics and functionality. In fact, dental implants, with proper care, will last a lifetime, giving you a natural seeming replacement for missing teeth.
Because your dental implant will look and feel like a natural tooth, you will have the self-confidence in social situation to smile naturally and generously. Your smile has a direct effect on your self-esteem. Take care of missing or gapped teeth with dental implants and restore your smile and your self-confidence. Dental implants help to maintain your teeth so that you no longer need to be ashamed of your smile.
Rather than resting on the gum line like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like fixed bridges, dental implants are long-term replacements. Dental implants do not slip or make embarrassing noises like dentures. Additionally, dental implants do not decay.
