Most people who lose teeth also lose quite a bit of self-confidence. If you’ve got gaps in your smile, you tend to be reluctant to show it. Missing teeth can even affect how you speak, making you even more shy around others. The good news is, implant treatment can make your smile as good as it was before – or maybe even better.
That’s because unlike other kinds of replacement teeth, dental implants function a lot like tooth roots. Once they are placed in your jaw, your bone fuses to them, creating an incredibly solid foundation for crowns, bridges, or dentures.
