A Detailed Look At Modern Dental Implants

There is no worse dilemma than having an aching tooth, which must be removed, yet the idea of losing it is in itself highly disturbing. Fortunately, there is a way modern dental implants can solve your missing tooth problem, whatever caused it, and restore your confidence and overall oral appearance.

What Is A Dental Implant?

If you have a missing tooth, an Anchorage dentist will recommend a dental implant, which is a safe and advanced way to reclaim a lost tooth or smile. The implant is designed and made just like a natural tooth, with both the crown and root parts.   A titanium root is firmly secured into your gum and the crown fitted on top of it, to give you the comfort of a natural tooth.

Why Should Modern Dental Implants Be Your First Choice?

If you want, a dental implant can remain a secret between you and your dentist, because no one else can tell you have it without probing. The dental implant is crafted to be a life-like replacement, with the crown’s natural color and matching the size, shape and contour of a natural tooth. The biological compatibility of a dental implant makes it feel very natural in your mouth as you eat, speak or smile.

While a missing tooth may not be a medical emergency, it can rob you your youthful appearance in the following ways:

  1. The adjacent teeth can change positions to fill the gap left by a missing tooth
  2. With a missing tooth root, your jawbone may gradually shrink and make your face appear a couple of years older
  3. Quality and confidence of your smile is affected significantly, potentially ruining your self-esteem.

The fact that a dental implant can replace a missing tooth with a complete life-like equivalent gives it several advantages:

  1. First, your teeth remain where they should be to prevent jawbone shrinkage and preserve your facial contours.
  2. Secondly, with a dental implant, you no longer have to smile while tight-lipped or with your mouth covered, because there’s nothing embarrassing to hide anymore.

With modern dental implants guaranteeing you life-long comfort and confidence, let an Anchorage dentist take a look at your mouth and offer the best treatment options for your circumstances. On top of everything, you can enjoy your restored tooth function for longer, with a consistently good level of oral care and maintenance.
