Some dental care procedures both improve smiles and protect the health of the patient.
People can lose teeth for a number of different reasons. Perhaps it happened as a consequence of tooth decay or maybe it was the unfortunate result of an accident of some sort. Whatever the case may be, missing teeth can negatively affect a person's confidence because they can lead to self-consciousness.
A missing tooth can also have health implications. The jaw is supported by the teeth beneath it, and a gap increases the risk that this bone will collapse.
Dental implants are one possible solution to the problems that missing teeth can create. Not only do they fill the visible gap left by a missing tooth, they also occupy the space in the gums where the tooth's root was.
In addition to supporting the jaw, dental implants prevent the gums from shrinking and the patient's other teeth from shifting.
The American Dental Associations says because dental implants are fused to the jaw, they feel more natural than conventional false teeth.
