A gap in your grin is not only unattractive, it is unhealthy. A missing tooth causes the jawbone to degrade and weaken and healthy teeth to shift out of place. For a functional, healthy mouth, tooth replacement is essential.
A dental implant is an excellent choice because rather than just restoring the part of the tooth above the gumline, it is an actual artificial tooth root that integrates into the jawbone, helping to maintain its integrity and strength. It is stable, strong, and feels just like a real tooth.
