A person can lose a tooth (or teeth) for a variety of reasons, whether through dental issues, or something unforeseen like a sporting injury or accident. A missing tooth not only leaves a gap in a person’s smile, it can literally create a hole in their lives, affecting their confidence and self-esteem.
A loss of confidence can have dramatic effects on a person’s wellbeing, their professional life and their social life. Although people may think that the cost of getting a missing tooth replaced is beyond their means, what price could you really put on your self-esteem and how this works for you in all aspects of your life? Also, there is ample opportunity through finance options to spread the cost of treating a missing tooth over an extended period of time.
There are several options available for filling the gap left by a missing tooth, but dental implants are a popular choice as, although they are more expensive than options like a dental bridge or a denture, they represent a fixed and permanent solution. Some people may also feel more confident with an implant in functional terms, as the structure is more like that of a natural tooth, with support from the jaw bone.
Fitting dental implants can be a complex process, however, and may require supportive procedures to enhance the available bone for the implant to be situated in. This is where treatments such as bone augmentation and sinus grafts come into play, increasing the amount of bone at the implant site and providing a more secure foundation.
