The Problem of Missing Teeth
Losing one's teeth can cause many physical and emotional problems. Loss of self-esteem because of changes in facial shape, difficulty chewing food, and trouble speaking clearly are just some of the pitfalls. Worst of all, losing teeth leads to early aging of the face. Because missing teeth cause so much trouble, people usually see a dentist that can perform restorative procedures to replace missing teeth. Dentures and bridges are two of the most well-known devices to replace missing teeth and allow a person to regain functionality and experience improved appearance. Dental implants are the third and most optimal option for patients.
The Solution of Dental Implants
Many people consider dental implants to be the most effective way to alleviate the problems caused by missing teeth. They have many advantages and are safer and more comfortable than ever before to receive.
If you have missing or badly damaged teeth, dental implants can provide a reliable replacement.
Advantages of Dental Implants
• Dental implants are stronger than bridges or dentures.
• Dental implants are permanent. Once implanted, they function like real teeth for the patient.
• Advances in the field of implant dentistry have made it a very safe and comfortable choice.
