If you’re missing a tooth, you might know that you should replace it as soon as you can. If you postpone having it replaced, your mouth will be harder to keep clean. As you might already know, keeping your mouth clean is very important to avoiding cavities and gum disease. Your other teeth may also shift if you don’t replace your missing teeth, which can lead to a crooked smile and undo any orthodontic work you’ve had. Once you decide to replace your lost tooth, there are several options you can consider, but please remember to think about the benefits of dental implants.
Like many restorations, implants are made to look natural and to match the color of your smile. This can improve confidence because an implant will enhance your smile’s cosmetic appeal. Implants are also considered a more convenient option than some other restorations since they don’t require any specialized care. You can also expect implants to last for thirty years and they’re also easy to replace if they’re damaged.
Finally, please remember that implants can restore your ability to chew and speak comfortably, which can be difficult if you’re missing a tooth. Implants can also stop your other teeth from shifting and can even help you avoid wrinkle lines.
