Opt for a dental implant and forget you ever had a missing tooth

Having a missing tooth can be frustrating and uncomfortable. But opting for a dental implant can be a great solution to the problem. A dental implant looks exactly like a natural tooth and is either permanently or temporarily fixed to the jaw.

Missing teeth affect people in different ways, but some people can find it difficult to speak properly when they have a tooth missing. It can also become difficult to chew food. This is when dental implants become the ideal solution.

Before proceeding with dental implants, you may need to make several visits to your cosmetic dentist. The dentist will assess your oral health and ensure that you are suitable for the treatment.

The first stage of the treatment is when the cosmetic dentist drills a small hole in the jawbone. The implant is then placed into this hole and left to integrate with the surrounding tissue. An artificial tooth is then attached to the screw.

Dental implants can be permanent or temporary. A permanent dental implant is fixed and you cannot detach it. It looks like a natural tooth and requires the same care.

A detachable dental implant can be removed whenever you want. But both types of dental implants are durable and can last for years to come.
