How does the saying go, Smile and the world smiles with you. If you suffer from tooth loss, smiling can be a terrible experience. Do you hide your teeth from others, hoping that they won’t notice the gaps from your missing teeth? Are social situations embarrassing for you, because you wonder if everyone is staring at your mouth? Tooth loss can be an embarrassing affliction, but most people don’t know how easy it can be to fix.
Take a look in the mirror and imagine a full, glistening smile. I’ll bet it would make you look and feel at least 10 years younger. With the latest dental implant technologies, you don’t have to imagine anymore. A dental implant is simply a metal screw that is used to hold a false tooth in place. The success rate for dental implant procedures is very high, above 90% in most cases. Aside from improving your self-image, dental implants facilitate chewing, provide support for bridge work, and reduce movement and friction among the false and real teeth.
