Missing tooth is a huge letdown. It can lead to a lot of embarrassment when you smile or converse with your loved ones. If that wasn’t enough, it also affects the person’s ability to bite and chew food and their phonetics. This calls for an effective replacement to restore both the aesthetics as well as the functionality of the mouth.
Dental implants are considered as the best replacement for natural teeth by dentists all over the world. They are strong, long lasting and look exactly like natural teeth, placing them a notch above their obvious alternatives such as dental bridges and dentures. Our dental team has treated several patients with missing teeth in the past and has helped them regain their lost smile and confidence.
Absolutely! Missing teeth pose several disadvantages, both from the aesthetic and functional point of view. Some of them are as follows:
Dental implants offer several advantages that other tooth replacement solutions cannot, such as the following:
The dentist would carefully screen your mouth and consider several factors before suggesting an implant to replace your extracted tooth. Some of them are the gum health, jawbone density, spacing available, if the teeth have drifted from their positions, etc. During the surgery, local anesthesia would be given to the gums to numb the entire oral area and prevent discomfort.
The implant, which is made from titanium, will be inserted into a hole that is made in the jawbone. It will be fixed firmly using dental adhesives. After the implant site heals, which usually takes six to eight weeks, the ceramic crown will be placed on it. If required, the crown will be polished to match the color and texture of the adjacent teeth.
