Losing even a single tooth can have detrimental effects on how you eat, smile or even speak. Losing teeth has an even bigger physiological and psychological impact. Thankfully, there are multiple solutions available for missing teeth. Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth. They help restore the appearance and function of your smile. Their design involves a plastic or metal plate with prosthetic teeth attached to it. The prosthetic teeth are created to mimic your existing teeth in terms of colour, size and shape.
Dental implant surgery involves the installation of synthetic tooth roots that anchor the replacement tooth. Usually, the dental implants are installed surgically into the jawbone, and the procedure is extremely safe. However, there are certain things you need to do after surgery to ensure you heal quickly and avoid further complications. This piece will share some of these guidelines, so be sure to follow them along with those your dental expert will provide.
