Missing tooth – Forgotten smile
Any missing teeth impact the function and appearance of your smile.
Missing teeth not only create discomfort in chewing and biting but also result in shifting of the other teeth into the gap that has been created. They cause the teeth to shift positions which create an imbalance in the oral cavity. Bridges and dentures are prosthodontic replacements for lost teeth have been the historical means of replacing missing teeth. But now we can also add dental implants as an additional option. Dental implants not only act as wonderful replacements for your teeth but also protect the periodontium and the jawbone from degeneration.
Dental implants are made of Zirconium or titanium. They are fit into the jaw bone, in place of a missing tooth or teeth. An abutment is fixed over the implant which can carry an artificial crown as a replacement for a natural tooth. Once in place, it feels just like your old tooth.
All dental services at our office are offered by general dentists.
