If you are missing a tooth, the surrounding teeth can shift position in attempt to fill the gap and could cause your jawbone to breakdown. This can lead to serious health problems. Losing one or more teeth can also have a negative effect on your chewing and speaking ability. However, dental implants are a strong, permanent and natural looking solution to the problem.
A dental implant consists of a small titanium screw that is inserted into the jawbone and acts just like it is the “root” of your new tooth. A crown is then attached to the screw, giving the implant the look and functionality of a real tooth.
Dental implants can also be used to secure partial or full dentures so that they don’t shift around in your mouth. This is often recommended as it provides the benefits of more robust chewing and speaking ability.
