Have you ever had a missing tooth? Have you ever felt too embarrassed to smile? Is it difficult for to pronounce different sounds? If so, we suggest replacing your missing teeth as quickly as you can. In fact, if a tooth is missing, we recommend having the issue addressed because missing a tooth makes your teeth and gums much harder to clean. This leaves you more vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease. Fortunately, there are many options you could use to replace a missing tooth, including a dental implant.

Of course, there are several things you can try for replacing missing teeth. These options will usually help you restore your natural smile and let you chew and speak more comfortably. These options can also improve the appearance of your smile because they’re made to match your pearly whites.

Still, please be aware that dental implants offer a quite a few other benefits. For example, dental implants are actually very durable. They can last for 30 years or more if you care for them well. Furthermore, if you get a dental implant your other pearly whites won’t shift. Lastly, if anything happens to the crown on your implant, it will be fairly easy to repair.
