Your missing tooth can easily lead to other problems. A missing tooth allows other teeth to shift and puts them at risk of falling out as well.
A missing tooth can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile. Replacing that tooth gives you a complete smile once again. That’s the smile you want other people to see.
Your missing tooth also makes eating more difficult. Even if you keep eating your favorite foods, you may be putting more wear and tear on the side of your smile that is still complete. Over time, that missing tooth will make it more difficult to eat many things. Replacing that tooth allows you to sustain your ability to bite and chew.
With proper care, your implant can last the rest of your life. A crown can last for more than a decade before it needs to be replaced. By treating your replacement tooth right, your implant crown is an investment in your oral health.
