What is a dental implant?
If you're having a missing tooth, the best way to restore it is a dental implant, which consists of a titamium post and a crown.
Why should I replace a missing tooth?
There are several reasons that you should restore any missing teeth.
- Any teeth adjacent to the missing tooth will shift to the missing space, and it moves sideways and may cause other dental problems eventually.
- The teeth opposing the missing tooth will grow toward the missing tooth space (a process called super eruption).
- The combination of rotation and super eruption could lead to a collapse of the bite, which may lead to jaw joint problems (TMD, TMJ)
- Missing teeth can negatively affect your appearance.
