The front teeth in our mouth are the most exposed which can make them extremely vulnerable to being damaged from trauma, sport injuries and dental injuries. If you were ever to lose your front teeth due to one of these reasons, it can be quite upsetting and understandably knock your confidence. It can affect your facial appearance and perhaps force you to smile less.
As a result, you may be wondering about your options to restore your great smile and replace your missing teeth. One possible solution for you is the dental implants for front teeth only. They are considered one of the best and most effective dental treatments for replacing missing teeth.
A dental implant resembles your natural tooth and can help to restore your natural look, smile and teeth function. It consists of a titanium screw being inserted directly into your jaw bone where the original tooth is missing. After a period of healing during which we ensure that you will have a temporary denture or bridge to fill the gap created by your missing tooth, a permanent dental crown is then fitted onto the screw. This is a porcelain replacement tooth to fit into the gap.
Fitting a dental implant in your front teeth is planned in advance after your initial consultation. So when it comes to the surgery itself, it’s performed relatively quickly. By fitting a single dental implant, it can help to provide the root of your tooth support to prevent bone loss and keep the area strong and healthy.
A front dental implant can be the best option when it comes to replacing missing front teeth. Firstly, it can easily resemble a natural tooth making it unnoticeable whether you’ve had work done to the area. It can also be beneficial to overall oral health – when you have an implant inserted, it doesn’t compromise the health of the adjacent teeth in your mouth. Other dental options tend to require the teeth in the surrounding area being reshaped in order to replace the missing tooth. This can deteriorate the teeth over time.
