Many don’t realize that the consequences of missing or damaged teeth are more than just cosmetic. Left unrepaired, this oral health issue can cause serious problems that include:
- Inability to speak and chew normally
- Bone loss
- Jaw pain and infection
- Gum disease (which can lead to problems like heart attack and stroke)
An implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root” is usually made of titanium: the same material used in many replacement hips and knees, and a metal that is well-suited to pairing with human bone. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth. Implants are composted of three part: the titanium implant that replaces the root, the abutment, which is a post that connects the implant to the crown, and the tooth-colored crown on the top.
The ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum disease.
Don’t let missing or badly damaged teeth hurt your confidence or your health.
