If you’ve been hiding a missing tooth from embarrassment, you don’t have to keep it to yourself anymore. Many people are living with missing teeth, and it’s not always because of poor oral hygiene. No matter how you lost your missing teeth, Dr. Natasha Radosavljevic — Dr. Rados for short — a dentist in Clearwater FL can help you restore your confidence with dental implants, the premier treatment recommended by thousands of dentists to replace missing teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants actually take the place of your missing tooth. A metal implant is surgically implanted into the jawbone and replaces the tooth’s root. Then, an artificial tooth called a crown is attached to the implant, and this crown blends in with your existing teeth. Once you have healed from the implant surgery, you can use your new implant exactly the same way as you would with your natural teeth.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Unlike other methods for tooth replacement, dental implants are used and cleaned just like your natural teeth. Since implants are permanently installed in your mouth, there is no need to remove the implant to clean it. You simply brush and floss implants normally alongside your natural teeth as they do not require any special cleaning. No one will know you have had an implant installed unless you tell them.
Implants can help you regain confidence in your oral health as well. When a permanent tooth is lost and not replaced with an implant, the jawbone can actually shrink due to bone loss and cause harm to the structure of your mouth and stability of your bite. Dental implants replace the root from the missing tooth, preserving your jawbone’s structure and making sure your teeth remain securely in place.
