Suffering From Hypodontia? Get Dental Implants

Dental implants are designed to look and feel just like your real teeth. They are comfortable to wear and do not impact on the healthy teeth.

 

What Is A Dental Implant?

A tooth implant Barrie is an artificial tooth that is integrated into the jawbone surgically in order to replace a missing tooth from the roots. Most implants are made using titanium. Overtime the implant which is a metal, fuses with the jawbone providing a very stable foundation for a missing tooth. Dental implants may be recommended whether you are missing one tooth or several teeth.

 

Why you need to replace missing teeth

Having missing teeth is not just bad for your physical appearance. It has a huge impact on your oral health too. Teeth are designed to stimulate the gums and bones. This is what helps to form the structure of your face. When you have one or two teeth missing, your jawbone starts to shrink and the gums pull back. This means that the rest of your teeth do not have adequate foundation and can collapse or shift. When you miss teeth, you are putting the rest of your healthy teeth at risk. You are also risking loss of facial structure. In fact, missing teeth can make you look older than you really are. Most importantly, you need to have a replacement for the missing teeth in order to avoid difficulties with chewing and speaking.
