Dental Implant Options for Missing Teeth

Posted in Dental Implants

There’s nothing that impacts your smile more than losing a tooth. Even if it’s just one tooth, other teeth in the mouth seem to respond to the open space and your smile begins to change. Teeth drift, shift, and even your bite changes. Some people even begin developing jaw problems because of it. Replacing your missing tooth is one of your top priorities, not just for your smile, but also for your oral health. There’s never been a better way to replace your missing teeth than with dental implants.

Implants for Single Teeth

If you’re missing just one tooth, an implant is an excellent choice for your tooth replacement. The artificial root can support a porcelain crown that looks and functions just like your natural tooth! Individual dental implants are very easy to care for – just brush and floss them as you would a real tooth. 

Dental Implants for Multiple Teeth

Dental implants are so strong that they can support multiple tooth restorations like porcelain bridges and even full mouth dentures. The titanium root makes dental implants stronger than even the healthiest of teeth, providing you with the security and stability that you demand from your investment.  

A Safe Treatment Option

Implants aren’t just safe; they’re now the preferred method of treatment for replacing missing teeth. That’s because dental implants are independent treatments that don’t alter the function of your other healthy teeth. The actual implant root is placed into your bone in the same place where your missing tooth once stood and your body naturally begins to develop more bone around it, securing it in place.

How many teeth do you need to replace? Call your dentist to find out if implants are an option for you!
