From Missing to Amazing: Make Your Smile Whole Again
That one missing tooth. Those annoying missing teeth. They’re not there, and you do your best to ignore that. Did you know that your missing tooth or teeth could be causing harm to your other teeth? It seems strange to think that something that’s not even there could hurt your smile, but it’s true.
Believe it or not, your missing tooth can:
- Cause shrinkage in your jaw bone
- Cause receding in your gums
- Cause remaining adjacent teeth to weaken
- Cause adjacent teeth to be more prone to decay and disease
So, that missing tooth or teeth are wreaking more havoc on your smile than you may think. It’s time you talked to your Pine Mountain dentist about dental implants. They’re a lot more amazing and more affordable than you might think!
How Does a Dental Implant Work?
Dental implants are an amazing dental invention that have come a long way over the years. They’re highly durable and very effective at mimicking your natural teeth, so you don’t experience any deterioration of your jaw bone or changes to how your face looks.
Dental implants consist of a small, artificial tooth root usually made from titanium. On top of that, you’ll receive a custom crown that looks and feels like your natural teeth.
