If you’ve been living with the embarrassment and discomfort of missing a tooth or teeth — hesitant to smile, restricting your diet to soft foods — you don’t have to anymore. Many people are missing teeth for many different reasons, not just due to poor oral hygiene.
No matter how your teeth were lost, Monroe & Monroe Implant & General Dentistry in Pinehurst, NC can help you restore your confidence and the full functionality of your smile with dental implants. This cutting edge treatment is recommended by thousands of dentists and satisfied patients to replace missing teeth.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants actually replace a missing tooth from the root up. A titanium or zirconium implant screw is surgically inserted into the jawbone and replaces the tooth’s root. An artificial tooth — a crown — is mounted atop the implant, restoring the functionality of the tooth while blending in with your existing teeth. Once your jaw has healed from the implant surgery, you can use your new implant to bite and chew the same as you do your natural teeth.
How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?
Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are placed in your mouth individually and directly into the jawbone. This means that you will brush and floss them just like your natural teeth, without any need to ever remove them. Unlike dentures, you will never need to bother with messy adhesives to keep them in place and will suffer the embarrassment of them slipping or falling out while you talk or eat. In fact, most likely new people that you meet will not even know you have implants unless you tell them.
Implants can also allow you to be confident in your oral health as well. Many people are unaware that, in addition to making eating difficult, living with missing teeth can actually change the shape and structure of your mouth and stability of your bite due to jawbone tissue eroding. Dental implants replace the root from the missing tooth which stimulates the growth of new bone tissue while also preserving the structure and making sure your teeth remain securely in place.
