The modern and effective tooth replacement solution
Dental implants are the most effective modern tooth replacement solution. It’s no surprise that a missing tooth causes a concern for visual reasons, it looks terrible. On top of the visual concerns, there are a number of serious potential oral concerns that come with a missing tooth.
So what is a dental implant?
Essentially, dental implants are screws surgically placed into the jawbone, working as an anchor for porcelain crowns and veneers.
Why choose a dental implant procedure
Missing teeth severely affect the function of your mouth, eating patterns, self-confidence, appearance and overall oral health. It’s important to first assess the cause of tooth loss.
If your tooth was lost due to trauma (knocked out) it is essential you attend to the services of a dentist or medical practitioner as soon as possible. This could potentially save your natural tooth. If your tooth has just fallen out, it’s important to diagnose the cause. Dental conditions like gum disease can cause teeth to fall out. This is a completely different issue that needs to be addressed through consult with a dental professional.
After diagnosing the cause, it’s important to act quickly and repair damage by replacing the missing tooth. If a gap from a missing tooth is left untreated, existing teeth can begin to migrate into the space, causing a number of oral issues and health complications.
