Maybe you’ve been suffering in silence, self-conscious about trying to conceal a missing tooth whenever you smile. But you no longer have to keep it to yourself. Many people are living with missing teeth, and it isn’t necessarily from poor oral hygiene. No matter the reason for your lost teeth, Dr. Benjamin Stevens at Beautiful Smiles in Greenwood, IN can help you restore your confidence with dental implants, the premier treatment recommended by thousands of dentists and their satisfied patients to replace missing teeth.

How Do Dental Implants Work?

Dental implants replace your missing tooth with a lifelike, fully functional prosthetic tooth. A titanium implant is surgically embedded into the jawbone and replaces the missing tooth’s root. Then, a life-like artificial tooth called a crown is affixed on top of the implant, blending seamlessly with your existing teeth. Once the site of the implant has healed from the surgery, you can use your new implant exactly the same way as you would your natural teeth.

How Can Dental Implants Help Restore My Confidence?

Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are cleaned and function just like your natural teeth. Since they are a permanent addition to your mouth, there is no need to remove the implant for cleaning as with dentures. You can still brush and floss normally, as implants do not require any special cleaning unlike with dentures and bridges. No one will be the wiser about your implant unless you tell them.  Most importantly, you never need worry about implants falling out while you eat or talk as might happen with dentures.

Implants can help restore your confidence in your oral health as well. When a permanent tooth is lost, you can actually lose jawbone tissue as it erodes from the empty space and the teeth start to pull in, causing your mouth to change shape. Dental implants replace the root from the missing tooth, preserving your jawbone’s structure and making sure your teeth remain securely in place.
