Many people take their smiles seriously, making sure that it looks the best it can at all times. Many people consider a smile a first impression, and when you surround yourself with friends, loved ones, and coworkers, you want to be sure you make a positive, lasting impression. Unfortunately, if you have teeth missing from your smile, you may find it difficult to be as outgoing as you would like to be. Having a smile that is not complete can be detrimental both to your oral health and the health of your body, and many people may not know what to do to restore their smiles back to their former glory. Fortunately, Dr. Jack B. Share is able to restore the smiles of his patients with dental implants at his Boston, MA dental office.
The reason why replacing missing teeth is so important is because it can put your oral health and your bodily health at risk. If left untreated, not having a full smile can put you more at risk for a misaligned bite, gum disease, and TMJ. Also, not having a complete smile can cause the other teeth in your smile to shift in order to make up for the extra space. Our tooth’s root acts as an anchor to keep your teeth in place, and when that is removed, the effects can be detrimental.
It is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Share to make sure you are a candidate for dental implants. He will evaluate your smile in its current state, review your medical history, and check your bone density. If you are a candidate for dental implants, a titanium post will be embedded into your jaw. This creates a secure bond, and, over time and will proper healing, the post will fuse with the bone in your jaw, promoting new bone growth. After healing, the crown is added atop the implant. The crown looks just like a tooth, so your new smile will look as natural as possible. If you would like Dr. Share’s help restoring your smile using dental implants, contact our office today!
