How can implants help you: If you are missing a tooth or teeth, you may find that they are not the only thing that you miss. You may miss your natural smile. You may miss other simple pleasures that most people take for granted such as the crunch of a delicious apple. Now with crowns, bridgework, and dental implants, we can help restore your smile.
At some stage in our lives, most people will lose a tooth, through such things as gum disease, tooth decay and trauma. This tooth loss places a great deal of strain on the rest of the mouth, and eventually results in loss and degeneration of the surrounding jawbone, and gum tissue. It also alters the overall shape of the mouth and face. Missing teeth can also have a negative effect on your self-esteem, and alter the way in which you deal with others. You may find that you smile less, or that you feel awkward talking with people.
Until fairly recently, the only choices available for people that were missing teeth, were either living with the missing teeth, or replacing them with dentures or other non-permanent appliances. Over time, these have proven to be uncomfortable in speech, eating and general wearing. For those who have lost most of their teeth in the upper or lower jaw, the problems are even greater. Loose fitting dentures compound problems and lead to sore gum tissue and additional pain.
At Nova Dental, we use the latest technology to make many more choices available to you. Crown and Bridgework and Dental Implants are two of the most advanced dental procedures available today. Read more about these two procedures to find out how they can change your smile and your life!
