It is a fact that having a single missing tooth is not really going to affect the way that you eat. You still have all your other teeth, and they are in perfect working order. However, missing just a single tooth can ruin your smile. In turn, this ruins your confidence, because you feel embarrassed to smile or laugh freely.
Certainly, you could have a denture with just a single replacement tooth on it, and there is no doubt that it is a cheaper option. However, you then have an alien piece of equipment in your mouth. You may get used to it in time, but you have to take it out at night, and sterilize it. It’s all a hassle that you can do without.
Dentures Cannot Replace Your Original Teeth
Of course, if you have several teeth missing, and decide to opt for dentures, they can never replace your original teeth. Dentures have an alarming capacity for slipping and sliding about when you eat, and it has not been unknown for a denture wearer to laugh heartily at a joke and have the dentures pop out of the mouth. Extremely embarrassing.
A tooth implant, on the other hand, can and does replace your missing tooth or teeth. Tooth implants are the nearest thing to the original that you can get, and perform in exactly the same way as your natural teeth. The titanium implant is screwed into the jawbone, which, over the course of several weeks, will bond to it so that it becomes a part of you. The tooth replacement is fitted to the implant, and – voila – you have your teeth and your smile back again.
