Many people have accidents or injuries that cause damage to a tooth or multiple teeth. Chipped or missing teeth aren’t just unsightly; they can also affect the other teeth in our mouth, which can eventually shift if the missing tooth is not replaced. If you’re looking to replace a missing or damaged tooth (or multiple teeth) you may want to consider a dental implant.

Some of the reasons to consider an implant:

  • When you get an implant to replace a broken or injured tooth, the surrounding teeth can remain untouched if they are healthy.
  • An implant can help stabilize your bite and help prevent problems with the jaw.
  • The implant base itself replaces the roots of a tooth.
  • The keeps the crown secure and stable
  • You will hardly know it’s there, because it feels so natural.
  • They feel and look natural both to the person with the implant and people who see it. 
  • The implanty does not require altering any of your other teeth to fit in place. 
  • When an implant is placed into an area of a missing tooth it helps prevent the bone from shrinking and which can cause changes to your appearance. 

A dental implant is one option for replacing a tooth that is both attractive and functional. Unlike dentures or partial dentures, implants are devices meant to mimic teeth that are implanted surgically in the upper or lower jaw. So how does it work? The implant holds the crown in place. The crown is a replacement for the tooth, with the look and feel of a tooth, while the implant base itself replaces the roots of a tooth and keeps the crown secure and stable. Implants are made of titanium and other materials that have been tested as safe for use in the human body. Implants are built to looks and feel like a natural tooth, fitting securely when you’re chewing food or speaking. They feel and look natural both to the person with the implant and people who see it. As a self-contained tooth replacement, it does not require altering any of your other teeth to fit in place. When you get an implant to replace a broken tooth or injured tooth, the surrounding teeth can remain untouched if they are healthy. An implant looks and feels great — you’ll hardly know it’s there — and it can help stabilize your bite and help prevent problems with the jaw.
