Could a Single Dental Implant Help Restore the Health of Your Mouth?
Posted on 8/20/2019 by Alyssa O'Steen
Dental implants have been doing so much for the dental world. With a way to replace missing teeth and provide a more permanent, long-lasting, beautiful solution; so many more patients are considering them.
They can do so much for the mouth of those missing single teeth. If you're considering the use of a dental implant from our office, consider the boost you will get for the health of your mouth when you have this specific area replaced.
Restoring the Health of Your Mouth with a Dental Implant
One dental implant can do so much without you even knowing it. When you have this one area replaced with an implant, you're ultimately helping the bone in the mouth stay strong and healthy, along with your gum area.
If you are missing a tooth in an area and you don't put anything in that area, the teeth can start to move to close the gap that the mouth has. In addition to this, the gum area can lose bone if there is nothing for the bone to hold onto. The bone is what keeps the teeth together, and it is what keeps the teeth and gums healthy.
Implants are recommended by our office when you are missing one or even a couple of other teeth that need to be replaced. These empty areas can be filled in with the use of an implant that acts just like a natural tooth inside the mouth.
Those that want to learn more about dental implants and how they work in the mouth, or if they are a good candidate that might benefit from the use of them, speak with our office today. We can provide the necessary help needed. This help is important to get when you want a better looking and feeling smile, but one that is healthier overall. Our dental professionals can help.
