If you look at yourself in the mirror and aren’t happy with what you see, it can cause you to have lower self-esteem. Likewise, missing teeth can take a toll on your happiness and cause you to smile less, which can ultimately lead to general unhappiness.
How Can Dental Implants Help?
A dental implant can replace one or more missing teeth, and they look and feel like your natural teeth. Implants work just like your natural teeth do. A large titanium screw acts as the root and is secured in your jaw. Then a crown is put on that has been specifically designed to fit in your mouth. Replacing a missing tooth can also help ensure the rest of your teeth don’t shift.
While implants help with your oral health, they can additionally have an enormous impact on your confidence. For example, you may not realize that you’ve stopped smiling or that your smile isn’t as wide as it used to be because you’re hiding your missing tooth. Dental implants will give you the confidence to smile again, as big and wide as you’d like to!
