Losing a tooth has more implications than it purely being a cosmetic issue. If not treated a missing teeth can lead to permanent damage as adjacent teeth tend to shift and as a consequence the lips and cheeks may lose their support causing a sunken appearance. Dental implants are an ideal solution to replace missing teeth.
Dental implants are root-like structures made of titanium, a material which is compatible with the body.
Benefits of having dental implants:
- They provide a long-term solution
- They re-create the natural structure of the tooth
- They preserve facial contours and appearance
- There is no need to sacrifice healthy teeth to replace a missing tooth
