Having a missing tooth can be quite an ordeal. Not only does it affect your appearance but you will also find it affects your ability to eat certain foods and the health of your mouth and your entire body, perhaps headaches or unexplained muscle pain.
Naturally, the effect of a tooth loss varies from person to person and depends on what exactly has been lost. If you’ve lost the crown, you’ve lost the visible part of your tooth. However, if you’ve lost the root as well, you’ve lost the unseen part of your tooth. The root anchors the tooth in your jawbone, providing stable support for the crown. Without the root, the bone around the lost tooth may gradually recede and the remaining teeth may shift. Chewing may also become more difficult with time.
An implant replaces both the root and the crown, providing you with a new complete tooth that is fixed securely to your jaw bone and matches your existing teethImplants can provide a permanent solution for one or many missing teeth and once again, you will be able to smile widely and enjoy whatever food you desire.
