A dental implant is a fixture placed into the jawbone to fuse with the bone and act as a replacement for the root of a missing tooth. This is the closest thing to a natural tooth, and it has great stability because it stands on its own.
Over time, changes to your jaw can cause dentures to stop fitting like they use to, causing discomfort and disrupting your ability to speak or chew food. However, you don’t have to live with ill-fitting dentures. If you or anyone you know has dentures that don’t fit well, we want you to know there is a solution: denture relining.
Whether you’ve been living with a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth for a long time or are just now facing this dental condition, a dental implant is a complete missing tooth restoration treatment that has been quite successful for many patients. Not only does it restore the look and function of a tooth, it’s also permanent, and the long lasting quality means that patients don’t have to worry about having to replace a prosthetic down the road.
Instead of a spa day or buying the latest tech gadget, consider a treatment that will boost your confidence and have lasting results. Read on to find out more.
