Living with a failing or missing tooth is not only embarrassing, but it is also detrimental to your oral health. You probably don't realize it, but your neighboring teeth have started to shift if your tooth is missing; and without a root to support, your jawbone begins to dissolve, which changes the appearance of your face and eliminates support for surrounding teeth. This is only one reason why it's important to think about replacing your tooth as soon as you can, and why Webster Groves, MO dental implants are a great solution. Here are some additional reasons to choose a dental implant.
Dental Implants and Oral Health
A dental implant is actually helping to protect your oral health because it replaces your tooth and restores your root. This ensures that there is no shifting of neighboring teeth or dissolving of your bone. Dental implants can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth because they can support dentures or dental bridges.
Dental implants offer the best longevity of any tooth replacement option because they can last for a lifetime with excellent home care and regular dental checkups. This also makes them a very cost-effective long-term option.
A Natural Look and Feel
Your implant crown is designed to match your existing teeth, so it naturally complements your smile. It also closely mimics your lost tooth in both shape and form so you'll enjoy all the function you had with eating and chewing before you lost your tooth.
