Dental Implants for Front Teeth
Dental implants are widely considered the best way to replace missing teeth. But many of our patients ask, “Are dental implants suitable for missing front teeth?” The answer is yes. Patients who undergo implant dentistry benefit in a multitude of ways, both physically and cosmetically, receiving a long-term smile solution following tooth loss as a result of the procedure.
The DentaCare Group serves patients in Edmonton, AB, with implant dentistry and a variety of other oral health services. Dr. Nathaniel Podilsky, and our team of dental professionals can assist you in restoring your smile and answering any questions you have regarding this life-changing procedure.
The Benefits of Dental Implants for Front Teeth
While the goal of dental implants for front teeth is to restore the root of the missing tooth, resulting in numerous physical and oral health benefits, patients also benefit cosmetically from this procedure.
A Balanced, Youthful Profile
Dental implants replace missing tooth roots and preserve your jawbone. More specifically, by providing the alveolar bone with stimulation, it prevents bone loss from occurring. This is especially important for patients at our Edmonton practice who need their front teeth replaced.
Without a dental implant, the bone begins to deteriorate which can lead to facial atrophy and cause the nearby teeth to shift into the empty space. Because the front teeth are so necessary for biting and are more visible than any other teeth in the mouth, this can lead to several functional and cosmetic issues.
A Stable, Lifelike Result
You might know somebody who has a dental bridge at the front of their smile. The simple fact you can tell it’s a bridge means they don’t always have the most seamless look. Implant crowns have no gray line or other telltale sign–you can expect a beautiful, lifelike smile.
The advantages are more than cosmetic. Unlike with dental bridges, dental implants have no effect on the adjacent teeth. The surrounding teeth do not need to be modified,, which can lead to future dental issues. The implant is simply inserted into the space of the missing tooth and topped with a crown for a self-supporting restoration..
Restored Function and Confidence
The front teeth, called incisors, are used to bite into food. Without them, eating would be very difficult. They are also one of the first things other people notice about you. So, if you’re missing your front teeth, you may feel insecure while talking and smiling.
Because implants replace the tooth root, they are extremely stable, allowing patients to use them just like they would use their natural teeth. We’ll also help you feel more confident in your smile by designing a dental crown that looks natural and blends in perfectly with the rest of your teeth.
