Missing teeth are bad news for your dental health. When you've lost
teeth, you leave your gums vulnerable to irritation and your remaining
teeth at risk for shifting and falling out. While dentures and bridges
used to be the only options for people with tooth loss, a newer solution
is becoming the gold standard for tooth replacement: dental implants.
With dental implants, you don't have to worry about many of the problems
that accompany dentures, like special care requirements and slippage that
causes speech and eating difficulties. Dental implants look and act like
your natural teeth, and they don't require special attention. No one
will know you've got an implant except you and your
Glenview dentist. Learn more about dental implants in this infographic from DentiStar.
If you have friends and family members who are dealing with tooth loss,
share this information with them so they can talk to their own family
dental care providers about their treatment options.
