How Do Missing Teeth Affect Your Life?
Missing teeth can impair your ability to speak and eat. Extensive tooth loss can make it difficult to eat a healthy diet. Dental implants can relieve pain, correct bite troubles, and improve function.
While conventional dentures are preferable to a completely toothless mouth, they can cause almost as many problems as they solve. Many denture wearers limit social activity because they are afraid their dentures will move around in their mouth. Dentures can also irritate gums and bring about painful sores. And they can make it hard to taste food.
Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jaw. They fuse with the bone to provide a solid support. One implant can support one replacement tooth, while several can support a dental bridge or full arch.
