Your smile says a lot about you, and unless you want to live your life with a frown, you likely can’t avoid showing the world your teeth. This can be a scary proposition for people with missing teeth. If you’re missing teeth, there are several options for restoring and improving your smile. A dental implant is the perfect choice if you’re looking for a long-term solution that keeps your gums and bones healthy without requiring you to change your eating habits. You should consider dental implants if you have any of the following:
Congenital Missing Teeth
Believe it or not, about 5 percent of the population doesn’t receive one or more permanent teeth. This is called congenital missing teeth. If you are missing teeth that never grew in, you can still have the smile you’ve always dreamed of. In some cases, we’ll need to make room for an implant by gradually moving the existing teeth into position. Once you have a dental implant, no one will know that tooth didn’t come from Mother Nature.
Accidental Tooth Loss
Accidents happen. Unfortunately, sometimes those accidents take your teeth with them. While there are ways to restore teeth that are knocked out due to an injury or other accident, sometimes the tooth can’t be saved. That’s when a dental implant can save the day (and your smile). If you lost a tooth due to accident or injury, you can still have the smile you want.
Tooth decay, over time, can compromise the health of your teeth and gums. Unfortunately, if left untreated, tooth decay can cause tooth loss or your dentist might recommend extraction. If tooth decay has left you with missing teeth, you can still attain a beautiful, radiant smile. Our dental implants will help you restore your once-healthy teeth and make you look – and feel – better than ever.
