If you’ve living with the embarrassment of missing teeth, shying away from smiling, eating or talking to others, you don’t have to hide anymore. Many people have had missing teeth, and it’s not always due to poor oral hygiene. No matter what the reason for your lost tooth or teeth, Dr. Bruce Spink at Spink Dentistry in Birmingham, AL can help you restore your confidence in your smile with dental implants, the premier treatment recommended by thousands of dentists to replace missing teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants actually take the place of your missing tooth. A titanium implant screw is surgically implanted into the jawbone and replaces the tooth’s root. Then, an artificial chewing surface called a crown is attached to the implant, allowing the crown to blend in with your natural teeth. Once you have healed from the implant surgery, you can use your new implant exactly the same way as you would with your natural teeth.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are used and cleaned just like your natural teeth. Because they are permanently placed in your mouth, there is no need to remove them for cleaning. You can brush and floss normally, cleaning your implant alongside your natural teeth. No one would know you had an implant unless you told them.
Implants can help restore your confidence in your oral health as well. When a permanent tooth is lost, the jawbone can actually change shape and cause harm to the structure of your mouth and stability of your bite. Dental implants replace the root from the missing tooth, preserving your jawbone’s structure and making sure your teeth remain securely in place.
