If you’re missing teeth, modern dentistry has a number of options for you to replace them. It’s essential to replace missing teeth with a restoration that will give your face structure and function. Otherwise the underlying bones will begin to deteriorate from lack of stimulation. This is a process called resorption, where the body absorbs the calcium from the bones.
Dental implants are strong, permanent and attractive tooth replacements. They consist of a titanium screw that is implanted in the bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. An abutment is fit over the implant to hold the porcelain crown that will look, feel, and function just like a regular tooth. It’s the best option to avoid bone resorption, maintain your facial structure, and prevent premature wrinkling and sagging that result from not having teeth.
