A Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth
A missing tooth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, which impacts your diet and nutrition, and alters the shape of your face making you appear aged. As if that weren’t enough, did you know it can also lead to bone loss? When a tooth falls out, the jawbone beneath it shrinks, or atrophies, and becomes brittle due to a lack of exercise. Fortunately, you can reclaim your smile with dental implants. A dental implant, sometimes called an esthetic or cosmetic implant, involves placing a tiny titanium post that fuses with your jawbone and supports a crown or bridge for permanent, natural-looking results that function just like your original teeth.
