Tooth loss is not necessarily an uncommon occurrence. You might even know someone who has lost a tooth for one reason or another. You may know someone right now who has lost a tooth, or many teeth, but have gotten a dental implant to replace the loss and therefore look completely normal. You can’t tell the difference, and they’ll never tell! Believe it or not, there are many reasons why tooth loss can happen, but there are ways to fix your mouth without losing a minute of your life’s quality.
Reasons for tooth loss can be self-inflicted, such as:
- Poor Oral Hygiene
- Irregular Dental Visits
- Poor Nutrition
- Smoking and Tobacco Use
You might not have so much control over the other reasons, such as:
- Tooth Grinding
- Hormonal Changes
Whatever the reason you have lost a tooth, you need to get it fixed ASAP to avoid further complications such as damage to the surrounding healthy teeth, limitations on social activities, or even changes in the foods you can eat. Those who enjoy their robust lifestyle need not face these challenges; Carpe Diem – seize the day and get a dental implant!
Dental implants are comfortable. So comfortable, no one will ever know that it’s not your own tooth and you might even start to believe it yourself!
Dental implants are aesthetically pleasing. Your implant will match the color and appearance of the rest of your teeth and you’ll be able to smile with ease and without embarrassment.
Dental implants are strong. So strong, you can bite into whatever foods you like, drink hot coffee or tea, and never have to worry about the tooth coming out. And they last for the rest of your life.
Dental implants are natural. They are placed into your jaw and fuse with your bone which stimulates the bone and drastically reduces bone loss in the future.
