There have been many new developments in the field of cosmetic dentistry and in particular, the area of replacing missing teeth with dental implants.

 Dental implants are an easy way of replacing a missing tooth or a broken tooth.

Having missing teeth can have a massive impact on how you look and feel and your overall self confidence.This can be addressed by replacing your missing tooth or teeth with permanent teeth or a dental implant. Dental implants are basically artificial teeth that look like real teeth and are permanently fixed into the jaw to replace your original missing tooth or teeth. The artificial tooth looks and acts like a normal tooth and can last many years as long as it is properly looked after.

The procedure of placing a dental implant occurs in several stages. Firstly, the metal connectors are planted into a pre-drilled socket in the jaw and after this, artificial teeth are attached to them. The procedure does not affect the other teeth in any way and it should result in a tooth that is indistinguishable from the real teeth surrounding it.

Once a person gets a dental implant, it is important that they keep visiting their cosmetic dentist in order to avoid any complications. Another important point after the dental implant is that it is vital to keep the implant clean by carrying out proper oral hygiene practices, such as brushing regularly and using mouthwash.
