There are many instances in which patients experience tooth loss. When a tooth is lost and it is not replaced, it can create a negative domino effect of changes in the mouth. Losing a tooth can lead the rest of your teeth to shift from their current spot and potentially cause a dental occlusion. This can have an impact on your overall dental health and your overall health.
There are a few interventions that can be used to impede this from happening. One of the most effective and common interventions are dental implants. Dental implants are essentially an artificial tooth root that gets placed in the jawbone where the previous tooth was. This creates a permanent and strong foundation that replaces the natural tooth. A dental implant is not simply an aesthetical replacement of such said tooth but also a replacement of the root.
Dental implants require a lengthier time investment than other interventions. However, it is a wonderful option when considering the long term health of your mouth. Below are some of the reasons that might prompt you to consider dental implants over other options.

Yes, there are other solutions to address the issue of tooth loss. We always recommend that you explore all of your options and our team is happy to help you in your research journey. Having said that, dental implants are possibly the most convenient and comfortable option for tooth replacement out there. This is because they are directly inserted into the jaw, which means that the jaw bone grows around it. The jawbone holds the implant firmly in its place. This makes it so that the implant fits permanently with the existing teeth.
