When tooth loss occurs, surrounding bones begin to shrink, shifting nearby teeth in the mouth and changing the shape of a person’s face. Dentists offer various remedies like bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
Dental implants are an excellent solution for missing teeth. The process starts with the dentist creating an artificial root under the gum line. S/he then attaches a replacement “tooth” or crown to it, resulting in a more permanent remedy.
1.Improved oral health. Since nearby teeth are not altered to support a new implant, remaining teeth can remain intact. Because the implant functions like a real tooth, flossing is relatively simple.
2. Better comfort. Dental implants are designed to resemble natural teeth and fit well in the gums, making it easier to talk, eat, and drink.
3. A More permanent solution. The implants fuse with the bone, negating the need to remove dentures or partials before eating or sleeping. With regular oral health care (brushing and flossing) implants should last a long time and 12 weeks hygiene visit.
4. Increased confidence. Never again worry about being caught “without your teeth.” Dental implants allow you to smile anytime and reduce concerns about personal appearance.
