If you’ve been suffering in silence trying to conceal a missing tooth, you don’t have to hide it any longer. Many people lost or damaged teeth, and it’s not always due to poor oral hygiene. No matter the reason for tooth loss, Dr. Melvin Benson Jr. and Dr. Jacob Dunham at Integrated Dental Arts in Greeley, CO can help you restore your smile and your confidence along with it using dental implants, the premier treatment recommended by thousands of dentists to replace missing teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants actually replace your missing or damaged tooth. A metal implant is surgically implanted into the jawbone, replacing the root. Then, an artificial tooth known as a crown is mounted atop the implant, and this crown blends in with your existing teeth. Once you have healed from the implant procedure, you can use your new implant just like you do your natural teeth.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants require no special care. Since they are a permanent addition to your mouth, they never need to be removed for cleaning like dentures. You can still brush and floss normally without changing your technique as you do with a dental bridge. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about an implant falling out of your mouth when you talk, laugh or eat as can happen with dentures. In fact, most people will have no idea you have an implant unless you tell them which can boost your confidence.
Implants can also help you feel more confident about your oral health as well. When a permanent tooth is lost and the space left open, the jawbone can erode, the teeth can shift and the structure of your mouth and stability of your bite may be at risk. Dental implants replace the tooth from the root up, causing it to bond with the jawbone tissue to remain securely in place.
