If you’ve been living with the hardship of concealing a missing tooth when you smile, talk or eat, you don’t have to anymore. Many people have had missing teeth, and it’s not just due to poor oral hygiene. No matter the reason for tooth loss, Dr. Jason Petkevis at Dental Distinction in Chester Springs, PA can help you restore your confidence with dental implants, the premier treatment recommended by thousands of dentists to replace missing teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants actually fill the missing space left by your lost tooth. A titanium implant screw is surgically implanted into the jawbone and replaces the tooth’s root, bonding naturally with the bone tissue there. Then, a lifelike artificial tooth called a crown is attached atop the implant. This natural looking prosthetic tooth blends in with your existing teeth and, once you have healed from the implant surgery, you can use your new implant exactly the same way as you would with your natural teeth.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are used and cleaned just like your natural teeth. Since they are a permanent addition to your mouth, there is no need to remove the implant for cleaning or maintenance. You can still brush and floss and implant normally alongside your natural teeth since implants do not require any special cleaning. No one would know you had an implant unless you told them.
Implants can help restore your confidence in your oral health as well. When you lose a permanent tooth, your jawbone can actually change shape and harm the structure of your mouth and stability of your bite. Dental implants replace the root from the missing tooth, preserving your jawbone’s structure and minimizing teeth movement.
