Increased Confidence With a Natural-Looking Smile
No one feels improved confidence from an empty socket in their smile. A missing tooth stands out in pictures, distracts in presentations, and embarrasses on dates.
That’s why one of our favorite dental services is safely and quickly replacing a tooth. It’s exciting to see a patient’s face light up when they see their smile in the mirror. Their confidence is back and worry is over!
Natural Tooth Color
When you get a new tooth, either in a dental bridge or a tooth crown, we carefully tint the color to match the rest of your smile. It will blend right in with your other teeth. You might forget which teeth are new and which are natural.
Natural Fit, Natural Feel
Because the tooth implant process first gives you a titanium tooth root, bonding with your jawbone, your new tooth will feel natural in your mouth.
When you chew, a tooth crown attached to an implant puts pressure directly onto your jaw, just as your other teeth do. You won’t feel any difference between them.
Alternatively, you could get implant-supported dentures attached to several implants. Many patients tell us these are the best dentures because they never slide around on the gums or pop out. They feel natural and normal. Call us to schedule an implants consultation focused on dentures.
Eat the Foods You Want Wherever You Want To
If you love your food, don’t worry about a tooth implant being a problem. In fact, having an empty socket or damaged tooth is much worse, limiting what you can eat.
But after your implant procedure, you’ll have a strong, stable base for a new tooth. It will handle crunchy, sticky foods just like the rest of your teeth.
Of course, your family dentist or dental hygienist can advise you on the foods that are good for teeth in general, but your dental implant won’t limit you from eating a variety of great foods.
Improving Smile, Confidence, and Self-Esteem
What’s one of the first areas people notice about a person they like? Often, it’s a great smile. Your smile is a natural part of connecting with other people and living a happy life. Along with dental cleanings, a front tooth implant will help you laugh and smile confidently with friends and family.
Prevent Tooth Shifting With Dental Implants
Teeth have a natural tendency to migrate toward an empty socket. That’s one reason dental implant costs are worth it. Replacing one tooth also protects the rest of your teeth—and saves you from a visit to an orthodontist’s office to correct unplanned tooth movements.
Steer Clear of Gum Disease
An empty tooth socket is a high risk for infection and gum disease. At our family dental practice, one of our main jobs is to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, so replacing a tooth is a top priority.
Remember, gum disease causes bad breath and bacterial infections that spread to other teeth and even to other parts of the body through the bloodstream. It’s vital to your dental health and overall health to prevent an infection.
Encourage Bone Regrowth and Preventing Further Bone Loss
When you lose a tooth, the jawbone under it loses one of its main roles: holding the tooth in place. So the body starts a natural process of reabsorbing the bone material. The bone there shrinks.
This sometimes leads to facial sagging or other changes in facial structure.
But a hidden benefit of dental implants is jawbone growth. The implant surgery stimulates the jawbone to thicken and strengthen, saving your facial structure—sometimes even giving a more youthful appearance.
