Nothing can take the place of natural teeth, but dental implants can come close.
The teeth in the opposite jaw may also shift up or down towards the space. This can affect your bite and place more stress on your teeth and jaw joints.
If you are missing one or more teeth, there are many reasons why you should replace them:
- You may not like how the gap looks when you smile.
- Missing teeth may affect how you speak.
- A missing molar tooth can make it harder to chew.
- When a tooth is lost and not replaced, the teeth around it can shift.
- Bone loss can occur around the missing tooth. This may cause the remaining teeth to become loose over time.
- Loss of teeth and bone can make your face sag. You may look older.
- You hide your smile because you have missing teeth
- Your dentures are not comfortable
- You are not happy with your removable partial dentures
- You do not have or do not want your other teeth to anchor a bridge restoration
- People may choose implants to replace a single tooth, more than one tooth, or to support a full set of dentures.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are posts surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw. The implants become a stable base for one or more replacement teeth. They function as anchors that replace your natural tooth roots.
Patients may choose dental implants to replace a single tooth, several teeth or to support partial or full dentures.
Here are some of the main reasons people get implants:
- They help you chew better
- They can help fill out a face that could look “sunken” because of missing teeth
- Dental implants can prevent further bone loss in the jaw
- They are the closest things to natural teeth

Benefits of Dental Implants
- Implants offer firm support to human-made teeth, Dentures, bridges or single teeth attached to the implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth – a very important benefit when eating and speaking.
- This secures fit also helps human-made teeth feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.
- Some people may find implant-supported dentures more comfortable than dentures that do not use implants.
- When teeth are missing, dental implants also help keep the jawbone from shrinking.
- Implants are a good value because they can last a lifetime with good care.
- A single tooth implant is a stand-alone unit and doesn’t involve treating the teeth next to it.
- Implants help to preserve the bone after teeth are lost or removed.
- Dental implants stimulate the jawbone and gums, ensuring an attractive, esthetic result, while helping to maintain facial structures
- New teeth on dental implants do not require adhesives, eliminating the discomfort and insecurity of loose, ill-fitting dentures.
Good oral hygiene is very important for the success of the implant.
If your dentist Hoppers Crossing does recommend implant treatment, consistent and good oral hygiene is very important for the success of the implant.
You must spend time caring for the implant and making sure the area around it is very clean. If not, it increases your risk for infection, which can weaken the bone and tissues that are needed to support the implant.
