Find Out How to Boost Your Smile With Dental Implants
Dental implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth. Conventionally, patients used to always opt for bridges, which is where you have three crowns, and they’re connected to fill a spot. The nice thing about the implant is it’s more conservative because it just fills that one space. You don’t have to put crowns on the teeth behind and in front of that space. Here at Sabal Dental, we guide you through that process of the actual implant placement and the crown, which is the tooth part that goes on it. We can help you through all phases of that.
Often patients, if they lose teeth, sometimes it won’t bother them. Sometimes they’re like, ‘Well, I don’t really miss it anyway.’ The issue with leaving these spaces is sometimes our teeth, on the opposing arch, can almost move up into that space. Normally, our teeth are like this, where the top hits the bottom, but if we lose the top, that bottom one drifts up, and then we start to have issues where our bite’s misaligned. Sometimes that bottom tooth ends up needing to come out. So really, filling the space is more than just filling the space. It’s keeping everything in an optimum state for your oral health.
