If you've lost a tooth in the Bryn Mawr area, it's important that you get a replacement as soon as possible. A missing tooth poses a clear and present danger to your oral health. If you leave a missing tooth un-replaced, you increase the risk of losing more teeth, not to mention a resorption and shrinkage of bone in the area of tooth loss.
There are a lot of tooth replacement options available to you, but we usually recommend dental implants to patients seeking a durable replacement. Why? Dental implants offer a number of advantages over other replacement options, including:
- Durability – if properly maintained, dental implants can last for decades
- An inconspicuous appearance – no one will notice you have an artificial tooth
- Dental implants are firmly rooted in your jaw, meaning they stop the loss of bone density associated with a missing tooth
- Dental implants do not require the alteration of nearby teeth
Of course, dental implants aren't the right choice for everyone. Our dentists will thoroughly evaluate your teeth and jaw to determine if you're a good candidate for implants. The good news is that most people are, and if you are a good candidate, implants represent an exceptional solution to your tooth replacement needs.
