If you live with embarrassment trying to conceal a missing tooth, you may not have to worry about hiding it anymore. Many people lose teeth, and it’s not always due to neglecting their oral hygiene.
No matter the reason for your lost tooth, Dr. Caleb A. Robinson in New Philadelphia, OH can help you feel free to smile again using dental implants, the premier treatment recommended by thousands of dentists and patients, to replace missing teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants replace your missing tooth down to the root. A metal implant screw is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Then, a ceramic artificial tooth — a crown — is mounted atop the implant. This crown blends seamlessly with your existing teeth and restores full functioning to your teeth once you have healed from the implantation procedure.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Dental implants can be used to chew and then cleaned just like your natural teeth without any special precautions or maintenance. Since dental implants are permanently added to your mouth, they never need to be removed for cleaning. They require no messy adhesives to keep them in your mouth and you can smile, talk and eat with confidence knowing for certain that they will not fall out.
Implants also do not require any special cleaning and can be brushed and flossed alongside your natural teeth. Best of all, most likely no one will be able to tell you have an implant unless you tell them.
Implants help you preserve your oral health as well. When a permanent tooth is lost, the jaw bone tissue can actually begin to erode, causing teeth to shift. This can make your bite unstable and create excessive wear and tear on your teeth.
Dental implants replace the root from the missing tooth, which stimulates new growth of bone tissue, bonding your implant to your jaw. This also prevents your teeth from shifting and the shape of your mouth from changing. Using dentures instead of implants can lead to your mouth taking on a sunken appearance from jawbone regression.
