Losing a tooth can be emotionally draining.
When you first lose your tooth, you might not believe that it happened. For years you have given it your utmost best to take care of your teeth through personal and professional care.
However after you get over the initial shock, you begin to question where you went wrong and how you could’ve saved your tooth from falling out.
Following that is embarrassment, and attempting to hide your beautiful smile from family and friends because of your missing tooth. While you would love to be a part of the fun, you can’t decide whether you want to do that publicly or in private.
Lastly, you’ll face acceptance. This is where you understand that when you lose a tooth, it’s gone forever. However, why should you go through this painful process, only to end it on this sad note? Here at Atlantic Dental, we want to give you back your tooth that you’ve been missing and regain the smile you love so much.
You Aren’t Alone
Many people lose teeth, not everyone is fortunate to keep all their natural teeth forever. According to the American Dental Association, there are about 35 million Americans that are missing at least one tooth, with 1 of 4 who are 65 or older missing all of their natural teeth.
While we cannot simply grow back teeth like other species such as sharks, we have found a way to replace a missing tooth.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a trending solution to replacing a missing tooth. In effect, dental implants are a 3rd set of teeth after we lose our natural teeth.
Besides replacing a missing tooth, dental implants have many more benefits that make getting them that much more of a necessity. Dental implants are made to look and feel like a natural tooth. Consisted of a titanium post mounted with a crown, a dental implant is secure and is a permanent solution to a missing tooth. In fact, 98% of all dental implant cases have been reported as a success, showing just how great of a solution dental implants are.
