Worried about gaps between teeth and replacing your missing teeth?

A lot of people have a tooth or two missing that affects the appearance of their smile. The reasons for a missing tooth can vary from sports activities to work accidents, but whatever the cause, teeth don’t grow back once they are lost.

One of the options to improve your smile and replace a missing tooth or teeth is with dental implants. A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is surgically anchored in the jawbone or gums to replace the missing one.

Why choose dental implants?
Most people use dentures to replace the missing teeth and are not familiar with the advantages offered by dental implants , a highly effective and safe way of replacing missing teeth.

The benefits of dental implants are:

No decay – The dental implants used to replace missing teeth do not decay, so you do not need to worry about changing them.

No bone loss – Normally, when a tooth is missing in the jaw, the bone in that area slowly begins to deteriorate. However, with an implant, the bone remains stimulated and the body continues to maintain it, just as it would if there were a natural tooth.

Better appearanceDental implants are designed to perfectly match your other teeth to create an attractive and beautiful smile. Unlike dentures, dental implants are not loose and prevent you from the embarrassment of ill-fitting teeth falling out.
