If you're missing teeth, it can negatively affect your appearance, your self-esteem and your general health. The surrounding teeth will shift position in an attempt to full the gap, and your jawbone can breakdown. This may change your appearance and cause you to look older. You may find yourself restricted from eating certain foods because of your missing teeth causing pain or discomfort. You may even be self-conscious about having your photo taken, or speaking up in a social situation.
But a solution is only a phone call away. If you’re missing teeth, dental implants can help restore your smile. A dental implant is a small titanium screw that functions like a tooth root. The implant is integrated into your jawbone for a long-lasting, secure restoration. A crown is then attached to the implant, giving you the look of a natural tooth.
