When you meet someone who is missing a front tooth, what does that say to you? Do you start making assumptions about them? It isn’t fair, but we are often judged by appearance. A missing front tooth can be addressed with a dental implant from St. Mary’s Dental in Mechanicsville.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the jaw. It fuses with the bone, and becomes a firm and stable support for a replacement tooth.
The implant acts as an artificial tooth root. Because of this, they prevent bone recession in the jaw, which in turn supports facial structure, preventing the sagging appearance that often accompanies missing teeth.
One dental implant can be used for one replacement tooth. Several of them can support a dental bridge, or even a full dental arch. No wonder implants have been hailed as one of the greatest advancements in dentistry.
