Sometimes accidents happen, and if you find yourself missing a tooth, talk to your dentist right away about dental implants. Dental implants are an effective way to replace a missing tooth. They provide a fixed, permanent result for your smile.
Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone, which will give your new tooth the support it needs. The healing process can take a few months. During the healing process, your dentist may advise you to eat softer foods so your jaw can heal properly. Once the jawbone heals, your dentist will place an artificial tooth over the implant post to replace your missing tooth. This tooth can be customized to your specific needs and matched to fit your smile. This will make it so the dental implant doesn’t stand out or look awkward. Once everything is healed and in place, your smile will be complete again.
