Many times, when adults lose a permanent tooth, they allow the open space to stay without a tooth for a long period of time. This can cause shifting and loosening of other healthy teeth in the mouth, allowing additional problems to occur that will potentially cause the loss of more teeth. The best time to replace a missing tooth is immediately after tooth loss.
Replacing your Missing Tooth with Dental Implants
The best replacement for a missing tooth is the dental implant. The dental implant is a permanent tooth replacement that is surgically implanted into the jawbone acting as the root of the tooth. Once the permanent implant is placed, a prosthetic tooth will attach to an abutment that will act as your permanent tooth. Now, with a dental implant, there is no need to anchor a tooth to the surrounding teeth.This implanted permanent tooth will match perfectly to your surrounding teeth and the natural tooth that you lost.
Immediate replacement is crucial as filling the space of the lost tooth will assure no shifting of your remaining natural teeth and, with a permanent dental implant, your gums will continue to be stimulated when chewing for natural and healthy exercise of the jawbone.
The Dental Implant Procedure
After consulting with your dental implant professional, the procedure will be clearly defined for you and you will know what to expect every step of the way. The actual procedure will be scheduled and you will be administered oral sedation, a tiny pill that will leave you relaxed and comfortable during the surgical implant. Once your implant is finished, you will be given instructions on how to care for your oral health in the days following the surgical implant. The procedure is refined, simple and painless.
