There are times that—due to tooth decay, gum disease, or another issue—an individual may lose a tooth. If you lose a tooth, the appearance and functionality of your smile can be affected. To return your smile to its former glory, Dr. Kevin Caldwell may recommend dental implants in Webb City, Missouri. A dental implant replaces both the tooth and the tooth roots.
There are many advantages to choosing a dental implant to restore your smile. Dental implants are designed to fuse with your jawbone, so they become a permanent part of your smile. Because of this, they look and feel like your natural teeth. Implants function like natural teeth, so you can eat what you like without discomfort. Unlike some dental restorations, dental implants do not require the altering of healthy teeth. Because of this, your long-term oral health will be improved. Dental implants are strong and will last for many years, or even a lifetime. In addition to all this, dental implants can give you back your winning smile and improve your self-esteem.
