What are the Options for Dental Implant Restoration?

Advancements in dentistry provide easier solutions for restoring a person’s oral health. Today, there are several options for restoration. From wireless braces to replacing teeth with titanium implants, the art of oral dentistry has come a long way.

Problems That Happen If You Don’t Replace The Missing Tooth/Teeth

By not replacing a missing tooth or teeth, you risk serious oral health problems, such as:

Speech problems

  • A missing molar makes it harder to chew
  • Your remaining teeth can shift
  • Bone loss can occur around the missing tooth
  • Loss of teeth and bone can make your face sag


Implants are being utilized to replace one tooth with an entire mouthful of teeth. They become the anchor for replacement teeth. They’re as strong as your original teeth. They feel natural, don’t break, and the color matches the rest of your teeth. 

Avoiding Costly Dental Repairs

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends these tips to keep your smile healthy and bright: 

Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste

  • Clean between your teeth daily.
  • Eat a healthy diet that limits sugary beverages and snacks
  • See your dentist regularly for prevention and treatment
