How One Dental Implant Affects your Smile


Posted on 11/15/2015 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
A diagram of how a dental implant works inside a patients jaw.If you are missing just one tooth, you might not give much thought to needing to replace it. After all, how bad could one missing tooth be to your oral health? The truth is that one tooth has a tremendous impact on your smile and can create devastating results if you do not replace it. The best option is a dental implant as it provides the "roots" that your jawbone needs for regular stimulation and stable growth. If you are not a good candidate for dental implants or are not ready for that type of procedure, at the very least, a dental bridge is essential to close the gap in your mouth.

Save your Smile

If you do not close the gap where your tooth is now missing, you run the risk of your remaining teeth shifting over to take the place of that missing tooth. Even though your mouth is made of strong bones, they are easily maneuvered when trauma occurs. This means that you are then left with a crooked smile, misaligned bite, and the potential to have a diminished self-esteem. On the other hand, if you replace that missing tooth as soon as you are able, you can prevent these issues from occurring, saving your smile with just one tooth.

If you are missing a tooth or are at risk of missing one, come talk to us about your tooth replacement options. Your smile is at risk if you ignore the gap and assume everything will be okay.
