Breaking a tooth is not only physically painful, but it’s also emotionally painful. This is especially true if you are dealing with a broken front tooth. There is something jarring about seeing yourself in the mirror without your front teeth. And when other people see you and they react in a surprised matter, that is also unnerving. As such, we are proud to offer tooth replacement services at our office in Virginia Beach.
There are many options available for dealing with a broken tooth. However, if our dentist decides that it’s time to replace that broken tooth, dental implants are oftentimes the best way to go. One of the reasons why dental implants are such a great option is because they are as close to your natural teeth as you’re going to get. A dental implant is stable, a dental implant is strong, and a dental implant works and looks like your natural tooth. As long as the implant is done by an experienced dentist, a dental implant is the best option for protecting your bones.
There are other options that are available that might work in certain circumstances, such as dentures or getting a bridge. However, all of these things can eventually lead to bone deterioration. A dental implant will not interfere with your ability to smile, eat, or enjoy other daily activities.
Dental implants are designed to last indefinitely. Other options such as crowns, veneers, or some form of dentures are only designed to last for around a decade. However, at some point, you’re going to need to get replacements. While it’s true that a dental implant might need the periodic adjustment, they last for decades. This means that dental implants over time are the cost-effective option in Virginia Beach.
Dental implants for tooth replacement allow you to enjoy living without worrying about your teeth. You don’t have to be embarrassed about your smile in public. You do not have to worry about having a missing tooth to the point where you don’t have fun. If you have a damaged or missing tooth that is visible, you know firsthand how embarrassing it is. You know firsthand how uncomfortable you feel when you smile, laugh, or eat and then you notice that people are focusing on your missing teeth.
Losing one or more teeth can lead to some serious health issues. Tooth loss can lead to a shifting of your teeth, which causes additional damage. Tooth loss can also lead to bone deterioration, which can cause your other teeth to lose their strength or lose their firmness. Dental implants are the only option available that allows you to restore your missing tooth with something that is as good as the teeth nature provides.
