Besides affecting your smile, missing teeth can impact important functions. Missing teeth may affect your speech and the ability to chew. It can also lead to bone loss and to the shifting of surrounding teeth, which may cause additional teeth to become loose over time.
Dental implants are an effective and highly esthetic option for restoring oral function and for restoring your smile. Because they are surgically placed into the jawbone, dental implants may help reduce bone loss and keep the jawbone from shrinking. During the healing process, the jawbone grows around the implant and holds it in place. The secure fit of dental implants may also feel more natural than bridges or dentures.
If you have additional missing teeth, dental implants offer firm support so that dentures, bridges, or single teeth attached to the implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth. An implant-supported denture tends to be comfortable and stable, allowing you to bite and chew naturally.
With good care, implants can last a lifetime and be a permanent solution for missing teeth.
