While teeth are designed to last throughout your lifetime, accidents and other issues can happen which cause your teeth to fall out. If that happens, you may notice that it’s harder to chew or eat because of the missing tooth, depending on where it is.
Along with such, a lost tooth can cause other teeth to fall out, tip, or crowd onto others and create even more problems. Dental implants in Penrith can help prevent those issues. The implant itself is permanently placed, which means it will never come out. The crown on top can last upward of 10 years or longer with proper maintenance and care.
Dental implants in Penrith can also help with your appearance. Losing a tooth can make you feel more self-conscious about your smile. Some people stop smiling altogether or only smile with the mouth closed, which can make you seem like you don’t care to those around you. Along with such, you may notice that your appearance changes. While the change is gradual and most people don’t notice until it’s too late, you may find that your cheeks sink inward, you lose some bone around the chin area, and may find that your skin takes on a more slack appearance overall.
At No Gaps Dental, they know how difficult it can be to lose a tooth. While they hope it never happens, they’ve got a variety of professionals on staff that can help you. Dental implants in Penrith are an excellent option because of its permanence. Plus, the crown is semi-permanent, which means you don’t have to remove the tooth/teeth to clean them, as you do with dentures. Plus, you don’t have to buy any special cleansers or tools, as you can use traditional toothpaste, floss, and a regular toothbrush.
