If you’ve been living with the embarrassment of trying to conceal a missing tooth, you don’t have to suffer any longer. Many people have missing teeth, and it’s not always because of poor oral hygiene. No matter why you may be missing a tooth, Dr. Richard Sousa at East Hills Dental Associates in Roslyn Heights, NY can help you restore your confidence with dental implants, the gold standard method of smile restoration recommended by dentists around the world to replace missing teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that actually take the place of your missing tooth. A titanium implant is surgically implanted into the jawbone and replaces the tooth’s root. Then, an artificial tooth called a crown is mounted atop the implant, and this crown blends right in with your existing teeth. Once you have healed from the implant surgery, you can use your new implant just the same as you would your natural teeth.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Unlike other tooth replacement options, you will use and clean your dental implants just like your natural teeth. And because they are a permanent addition to your mouth, you will never need to remove the implant to clean it. You can still brush and floss normally, as implants require no special cleaning. No one will know you have an implant unless you tell them.
Implants can help restore your confidence in your oral health as well. When a permanent tooth is lost and not replaced, the jawbone can actually change shape and cause harm to the structure of your mouth and stability of your bite. Dental implants replace the missing tooth from the root up, preserving your jawbone’s structure and making sure your teeth remain firmly in place. With a dental implant, you can once again smile freely, confident that your smile looks healthy and natural.
