Missing teeth are unfortunately something that some people face in life. If you have lost all or part of your teeth from extractions, accidents, or from any other cause, then it is vital to get the teeth replaced as soon as you possibly can. Missing teeth can cause low self-esteem, and numerous other problems that should be avoided. Dental implants, dentures, or partial dentures are all affordable options that can truly make a difference in the way that you look and feel.
People that have missing teeth often have a difficult time eating and chewing, and as a result they can have great discomfort due to their bite being destabilized. Missing teeth can cause a person’s mouth to shift, and it can give people an aged appearance as well. Implants are the perfect alternative for many people. Implants are typically made from a combination of porcelain and steel, and they closely resemble natural teeth in appearance. When you get a dental implant, a steel rod will be placed into the jawbone, to take the place of the root that is missing. After the rod is in position, a porcelain crown is affixed to the top. An implant will give you an amazing natural looking smile, and it will restore your self-confidence.
If you want to wear dentures, rather than get a full set of implants, then dental implants can be used as anchors for your dentures as well. The implants can hold your dentures in place, so that they do not put you in embarrassing situations by slipping and sliding. Whatever your unique implant needs may be Dr. Hendlin can help.
