There are many ways a tooth can be lost, from playing sport to having an accident, or for some people there may be a tooth which has just not developed naturally. For many people, a dental implant is a common solution. There are occasions when younger people lose a tooth and want a long-term effective solution to treat the missing tooth without compromising their mouth aesthetics and tooth durability.
The benefits of implants are that they are extremely hard-wearing and can possibly last for the rest of the patient’s life if looked after correctly. The implants, which are made of titanium, help to keep the jawbone strong and undamaged by fitting with it and replacing the original roots of the tooth. The bone accepts the implant and fuses with it. The loss of a tooth can result in the jawbone starting to disintegrate meaning that the shape of the face can lose its structure and become saggy. Dental implants are able to stimulate bone growth and stop changes to the face and jaw through loss of teeth.
A dental crown can be attached to the implant after it has been inserted into the root so that it blends with the rest of your teeth for a natural look and feel. It can even be fitted along with a tooth extraction under certain circumstances. Losing a tooth is not the end of the world and there are a number of treatments available to deal with this.
