Is your smile missing something? If injury or disease has caused you to lose a tooth, it can take a toll on your self-confidence. Not only can smiling be difficult, so can eating your favorite foods, meeting new people, or even attending social engagements.
A missing tooth is more than a cosmetic problem. Just one missing tooth can causes a change in the workload for your remaining teeth. To balance this load, your teeth will shift, leaving additional gaps in your smile. And because the jaw surrounding your lost tooth no longer has a purpose, the bone begins to atrophy putting you at risk of losing adjacent teeth, as well.
Dental implants are often the ideal way to replace missing teeth. A titanium “root” is surgically implanted into the jaw, stimulating the bone to fuse to the post creating a solid foundation. A prosthetic tooth attached to the post will blend seamless with your smile restoring function, as well as your confidence.
If you’ve been living with the embarrassment of an incomplete smile, talk to Dr. Wright. Dental implants do require adequate bone mass and oral health prerequisites. A consultation and examination with Dr. Wright will help determine if you’re a good candidate.
