What’s the difference between a child and adult losing a tooth? For a child, losing a tooth is a part of growing up. The primary teeth are meant to become loose and fall out, giving way for permanent teeth to erupt. For an adult losing teeth, it’s usually an unexpected and unwelcomed experience. Losing a permanent tooth means that the natural tooth is gone, nothing will come after it. The only thing you can do from that point on is to find a tooth replacement that will help stabilize the neighboring teeth.

While bridges and dentures are great options for replacing all or multiple teeth, they still can’t act as a root for the synthetic crown. That’s why dental implants are so appealing. The implant mimics a natural tooth root because it connects to the jawbone while stimulating it in the process. This stops further jawbone recession, which can impact facial structure in the future.

Keep Your Friends and Family Guessing

A dental implant is popular for its functional value, but esthetics also plays an important role. Since the implant post goes through the process of osseointegration (metal fusing to jawbone), it keeps the implant permanently in place.
With a solid foundation, a dental implant is able to mimic the anatomy and function of a natural tooth, so it’s one of the least noticeable tooth replacement options for patients.
