Replace Missing Teeth With Dental Implants From Your Grand Ledge Dentist

If you’ve lost one or more teeth, you might wonder what you can do to improve the situation. After all, having a gap in your teeth means you may have difficulty eating, perhaps pain in your gums, self-esteem issues, and more.

The good news is that you aren’t stuck working around the gap for the rest of your life. Instead, you can get a dental implant. These implants look just like your natural teeth and allow you to eat and function normally.

Best of all, having an implant improves your oral health. When you’re missing teeth, the underlying jaw can deteriorate. This can change your facial features and cause other long-term issues. Dental implants stop bone loss beneath the gap, the way a natural tooth would.

If you have a gap in your teeth, it’s common for the surrounding teeth to begin to lean toward that space. This can cause more problems chewing and may even compromise those teeth due to unnatural pressure caused by their misalignment, creating damage and even additional tooth loss. An implant will stabilize surrounding teeth and help everything function as it should.

How to care for your dental implant

Dental implants are easy to clean. They fill the gap just like a natural tooth and you take care of them just like a natural tooth by brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once a day.
