If you’re missing a tooth, you know the process can be embarrassing, but did you know that missing teeth can also lead to other issues. Fortunately, there are several options you can consider to address this problem, including crown, bridges, and implants. Still, while we recommend considering all of your options, please don’t dismiss dental implants outright.
Dental implants are designed to look and feel like a natural tooth. Sadly, if you’re missing a tooth you could have a hard time eating, chewing, or speaking. Fortunately, you can overcome these issues with an implant. Also, the color and look of your teeth into consideration so your implant can made to match your smile.
As you probably know, having healthy, natural teeth is the best way to keep your smile looking healthy, but with recent advancements, dental implants come close. For example. Unlike dentures, which you have to replace about every five years, implants can last for more than 25 years. In fact, implants are durable enough that many patients never have to replace them.
If you would like to learn more about implants, we invite you to visit us. We will gladly inspect the health of your mouth and gums to see if you’re a good candidate. If you aren’t a good candidate for implants, we’ll be happy to recommend a different restoration.
