What to Do for Your Missing Teeth

Posted .

You know that it can be embarrassing to be missing teeth. In fact, having a missing tooth—or other imperfections in our pearly whites—can be a major blow to our self-esteem. Fortunately, our dentists can provide a number of solutions for a missing tooth. While we recommend considering all of your options, please don’t forget about the benefits of dental implants.

Fortunately, with a dental implant, you’ll be able to restore the functionality of your smile while enhancing its appearance. You see, implants are specifically designed to match the color, shape, and size of your teeth. You’ll also have the ability to chew and speak comfortably restored. In other words, with implants your smile can look and feel natural again.

Furthermore, implants are extremely durable. In fact, if you care for your implant well, they can last for more than twenty-five years. In other word, with implants, you’ll be able to enjoy a healthy smile for years to come. Similarly, if you’re missing teeth for an extended period of time, your jawbone isn’t simulated and doesn’t grow. This means your cheeks may begin to look hollow and your chin could begin to tilt up.

Finally, please remember that implants are fast and safe. If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of dental implants, or would like to schedule an appointment with our team, please don’t hesitate to give Portland Dental a call at 503-227-1693.
