Leaving alone the space left by a missing tooth (or teeth) may not sound like a big deal. But the consequences of not filling in the space can include:
Adjacent teeth changing position, thus affecting your bite
Shrinking of jawbone, making the face appear prematurely older
A less appealing smile
When you are missing a tooth (or a few teeth), you may find it difficult to chew or embarrassing to smile or laugh. Why let dental problems affect your quality of life?
Dental implants are replacement teeth that look and feel just like your own. A dental implant is an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a single tooth or multiple teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reasons.
Dental implants keep you smiling for life. You can eat and drink whatever you like without the inconveniences of cumbersome dentures and missing teeth. Best of all, the implants look and feel like real teeth for a flawless, natural smile.
Furthermore, you can use your Medisave for this procedure, defraying your out-of-pocket expenses.
Dentures and Bridges are alternative solutions to filling the gaps left behind by an extracted tooth (or teeth). However dentures come with its daily inconveniences and Bridges will require neighbouring perfectly functional teeth to be filed down to accommodate it.
With implants, you can enjoy your food and regain your good looks once again.Book An Appointment
