If you’re missing a tooth- or teeth- you’ve got some problems. Some are incredibly embarrassed by this, but truth be told, it is far, far more common then you think. Our teeth aren’t designed to eat the foods we have access to nowadays, not have we ever lasted as long on this Earth as we do now, and our teeth weren’t designed for these “excess” years. No, if you’re missing teeth the real problem isn’t embarrassment, it’s your health.
When you lose a tooth, the rest can start shifting to fill the gap, and this often leads to more tooth loss. This leads to problems eating, more gum issues, infections, etc. Basically, tooth loss is less about the aesthetics and more about the health issue. The best option both for looks and for your health is a dental implant. Basically, this is a fake tooth that looks quite real installed into your mouth on a titanium post. If this all sounds a bit like hardware, well, it kind of is, and guess what? It works. Dental implants look natural, feel natural, and keep your mouth- and you- healthy.
