If you need a tooth extracted, there are multiple options available to replace the tooth and restore your smile. A single tooth dental implant is a common procedure used to restore your smile. A dental implant replaced the lost natural tooth and its root.
Why Dental Implants?
A dental implant is preferred as it is the closest thing to a natural tooth. When you opt for a dental implant, you will be able to have a tooth that looks and feels close to your natural teeth. The implant is placed within the jawbone, making it secured and strong. Dental implants have several advantages over other tooth replacement options as they do function like a natural tooth. Unlike a dental bridge, the implant only impacts the extraction site. A dental bridge will impact multiple teeth, which can lead to concerns with decay and can be challenging to clean for some people.
A dental implant will replace the tooth root, allowing the bone to be better preserved. The implant stimulates the jawbone, allowing nutrients to continue nourishing the area, keeping the bone strong. If you do not have an implant, the jawbone can start to deteriorate, causing the jaw to start sinking in and can impact your appearance.
