Dental Implants Replace Missing Teeth
There are many reasons a person can lose a tooth. It may be due to trauma, such as a car accident or athletic injury, or it may be due to decay, infection or neglect. Regardless of the underlying reason, dental implants can be a viable solution for these patients, giving them a way to replace the missing tooth, and restore the aesthetic appeal of their smiles.
But that’s not all dental implants can offer. They can also provide these benefits for patients:
- Improved oral function – When a tooth is lost, it’s not just an aesthetic issue—it can also affect the person’s ability to bite or chew. Dental implants can help restore oral function, giving the patient an enhanced ability to chew, bite and eat.
- Preserved bite and alignment – Missing teeth may cause surrounding teeth to shift and change positions, resulting in problems with alignment and chewing efficiency. An implant can prevent surrounding teeth from shifting and preserve the patient’s correct alignment and bite, so these problems don’t arise.
