There are many ways a tooth can be lost. Everything from dental disease to facial injuries and beyond. Tooth loss can impact your ability to speak properly, chew your food, and hinder your self-confidence.
Thankfully, there is a simple and permanent way to fix tooth loss and restore functionality while also preserving a natural-looking smile and current facial contours: dental implants. They are a long-term alternative to crowns and/or bridges.
Dental implants are full replacements for lost teeth that look and function like the originals. They also help preserve your natural jaw bone, which normally shrinks after a tooth is lost.
Dr. Wickness offers dental implants that can replace single teeth or can even address full tooth loss and denture substitution. Beyond the immediate and obvious health improvements, implants also offer numerous benefits such as:
- Convenience – Rather than having to maintain and keep track of removable dentures, implants eliminate the mess, fuss, and ongoing cost, requiring no more effort than normal teeth.
- Durability – When you choose a high-quality implant, it can last for decades—even a lifetime!
- Aesthetics – Dental implants look and function just like ordinary teeth. No one will be able to tell the difference when you flash your now-full smile!
- Confidence – And speaking of full smiles, what better way to give your self-esteem a boost than to fill in unsightly gaps with a dental implant? You’ll enjoy better comfort, oral function, and appearance without having to worry about constant maintenance or care.
