Have you had an accident that caused you to lose a tooth? Did extensive dental care leave you with missing teeth? Tired of dealing with those loose dentures? If you are missing teeth, you may want to consider getting dental implants.
Dental implants are medically engineered artificial teeth used to replace teeth that have been lost previously. Over time, many people suffer losing one or more of their adult teeth either by a traumatic accident or as a result of dental health. Many lose their teeth as a result of tooth decay, root canal failure, and gum disease leaving gaping holes throughout their mouth often hindering their smile. Many suffering from tooth loss become incredibly self-conscious of their missing teeth and choose to avoid social situations out of embarrasment. Fortunately for sufferers of tooth loss, there are multiple treatment options available such as dentures, bridges, and dental implants.
Although there are many treatment options for those who are missing teeth, dental implants have proven to be the most effective at restoring the mouth to its full function. Dental implants provide a permanent solution to tooth loss as they are durable, and provide the look and feel of real teeth allowing patients to eat and drink without the hassles normally associated with other treatment options. Because they are placed directly into the jaw, many dental implants can hardly be noticed in the mouth giving the recipient the feel of a mouth full of natural teeth. Dental implants are such stable solutions that they are often used to support and stabilise dentures that otherwise are loose and wobbly in the mouth.
Don't continue to feel self-conscious about the teeth you are missing or your loose dentures. There is no reason to keep avoiding conversation or smiling when dental implants are available to complete your smile.
