The Best Option to Fill the Gap in Your Smile

When you have a gap in your smile, many patients experience a drop in their self confidence as they become embarrassed by their smile. Patients with missing teeth often find themselves smiling with closed lips, covering their mouth when they laugh, and not making eye contact during conversations. This embarrassment and impact on the self-esteem does not get better over time. In fact, not replacing a missing tooth often leads to damage to surrounding oral structures like adjacent teeth and the jaw bone.

So when patients are looking for an option to replace missing teeth, most dentists will recommend dental implants over dental bridges or partial dentures. Dental implants are considered the best solution to replace missing teeth because they mimic a natural tooth’s appearance and function at the same time. With proper care of dental implants, patients can expect them to complete their smile for a lifetime.


Blending the Aesthetic with the Functional

Dental implants are so revolutionary because they not only give patients a complete and beautiful smile, but they also ensure the patient is able to use their smile naturally for years to come. The implant crown is designed to blend in with surrounding teeth and look natural within the smile. Your dentist can make sure your new teeth match surrounding teeth in both shape and color. Most other people will never know you were missing a tooth to begin with!

Additionally, since the implant post is embedded into the jaw bone, the new tooth will be secure within the mouth. This also encourages bone growth within the jaw, as the surrounding bone tissue is stimulated by the implant just as it would be with a natural tooth root. This is important because it prevents your facial shape from changing over time due to bone deterioration and supports the surrounding teeth, holding them in place.

A Tooth Replacement Solution for a Lifetime

With dental implants, a patient can expect to have the new tooth last them for many years if they properly take care of it. This is far longer than other solutions like dentures or bridges. These other options often need to be replaced or repaired after a few years of use. Additionally, implants can be used to replace any number of teeth, including a full mouth of missing teeth! With full mouth dental implants, patients can actually completely revitalize their whole smile. Imagine having a full set of new teeth again that not only look beautiful, but function properly and without pain!
