Losing an adult tooth is a very frustrating experience. There isn’t any money waiting for you under your pillow, but there will be a dental bill for a restoration! There are several different types of restorations for a missing adult tooth, but only one can claim a lifetime of strength and function: the dental implant. The implant is the only restoration that is truly built to last.
Leaving that gap in your teeth isn’t a safe option. You might not mind the cosmetic effect, but that space in your teeth can cause other issues that you have no considered. Having a space in your smile means you are more likely to develop bruxism (teeth grinding), which can lead to pain in your temporomandibular joint (TMJ) or even broken teeth! Your other teeth might decide to move in on that empty space, causing alignment issues.
An Implant Solution
In order to fill the space in your smile, you’ll want a restoration that is not only comfortable, but one that will last for the rest of your life. A dental implant is the only restoration that can promise both and comes with a 96% success rate! An implant is a small titanium post that replaces the root of your tooth. We then place a crown on top of the implant to complete the restoration of your entire tooth, leaving you with a completely comfortable, functional, and beautiful tooth restoration.
If you have been missing a tooth for years, or you have just recently had a tooth extracted, an implant could be the solution for you.
