If a couple gets to celebrate their 50th Anniversary, surrounded by family, friends, isn’t it a great feeling? It’s indeed a remarkable achievement and fills someone with gratitude. But how about celebrating your 50th anniversary with having all your teeth and beautiful smile intact? As you age, it’s important to take care of your teeth and dental health so that you can enjoy good oral health in your old age.
Even if you maintain a good oral hygiene routine, you may lose a tooth because of any other reason. Having a missing tooth is not something that anyone wants and when it does, missing teeth can affect people in several ways. Depending on the location of the tooth loss, it can affect how you speak. Your pronunciation may get affected and for some people, it can be a source of embarrassment and make them hesitant to speak.
It can affect your smile and lead to low self-confidence. People may stop socializing and go to any length to hide their teeth. Eating can become difficult when you are missing teeth and the gaps can make it challenging to bite and chew foods. By getting a crown or bridge, you can fill the gap and restore the smile and continue eating naturally again.
The good news is that there are many ways you can replace the missing teeth today. For a single missing tooth, a dental bridge can fill the gap. If you are looking for better options, implant-supported crowns can help. The implant replaces the root of the lost tooth and provides support and stability to the crown. It is the closest thing you can get for re-growing a tooth in modern dental care.
When patients see their replacement teeth for the first time, they can’t help but smile. The dental crowns and bridges can give you or someone you love a reason to smile again. They have a natural feel and look and people can’t make out from a distance that it’s not your natural teeth.
