Of all the ways to correct for a lost or missing tooth, a dental implant is often your best choice. With a dental implant you can chew normally, smile with confidence, and care for your mouth and teeth just the way you always have. There’s no need for special treatment or cleansers, and your replacement tooth will work and look the same as your natural ones!
When a tooth is lost through an accident or extraction, a ugly gap is formed in your smile that not only looks bad, it affects how you chew food and can lead to crooked teeth, gaps, decay and can even lead to diseases of the gums or bone. While you may not notice it, over time your remaining teeth will shift to close the gap, you will end up with an uneven smile, and will lose additional teeth.
