As we grow older, nearly all of us start to lose teeth. Sad, but true. Some people just carry on without them, but having missing teeth can cause a number of issues. One of them is that you may not be able to eat some foods such as a nice steak, apples, nuts, and so on.
If you have missing teeth in the front of your jaw it is going to be very obvious to the world and his wife, and it can have a devastating affect on your self-confidence. Knowing you have those awful gaps means that you may try not to smile or laugh at a joke.
Not only that, but if the top center teeth are missing it can actually affect how you speak and prevent people from understanding what you are saying. This is because the tongue pushes against those teeth as you speak, which makes the words sound normal. But if they are not there that is not going to happen, and so your speech becomes distorted.

So, what if we told you that we can replace those missing teeth of yours in a day? In many cases, teeth in a day is entirely possible. You have to qualify in terms of your health, but the good news is that most people do.
Teeth in a day can be achieved by using dental implants. You may have heard of dental implants but are not sure exactly what they are or how they work. The idea is actually quite ingenious. A dental implant is a titanium screw which is inserted into the jawbone. The jawbone will then grow tightly around the implant in a process known as osseointegration, so that it grips the implant in the same way as the original tooth root. Then a crown is fitted to the top of the implant, and you have a new tooth that looks and works in exactly the same way as the missing one.
Now, if you have several missing teeth, they can be replaced by using two, three, or four dental implants and installing a whole set of teeth on to them and – bingo! – you have teeth in a day! You will be able to smile and laugh with the best of them, and you will be able to eat foods that you might not have been able to eat for years. Think nuts, apples, steak, French bread, corn on the cob.
