Dental implants are one of the most effective tooth replacement options available today
Dental implants are made of titanium and act as an artificial tooth root. This is better for your oral health because not only does it provide a strong and sturdy foundation for an implant crown, bridge or denture; it also looks after the health of your bone.
When you lose a tooth the jawbone, which holds the tooth root in place, starts to shrink away. This process is irreversible and jawbone does not grow back. You can prevent this process from happening with dental implant treatment.
This treatment looks after the health of your jaw and your remaining teeth. How it looks after your remaining teeth is simple:
After you lose a tooth the teeth on either side of the gap start to shift. Eventually, this can cause a crooked bite which in turn can cause a misaligned bite.
By replacing just one tooth you can:
- Help to maintain a healthy jawbone
- Help to keep your teeth from shifting
- Help to prevent further tooth loss
Over time, and depending on the cause of tooth loss, one lost tooth can cause further tooth loss. For example: if you lose a tooth because of gum disease (and it is still the leading cause of adult tooth loss) then unless treated this problem will only get worse and you could potentially lose more teeth.
Additionally, if tooth loss isn’t treated the jawbone shrinks and can weaken the support around the teeth causing them to fall out.
