The following are negative effects of missing tooth.
- Bite difficulty
- Shifting of remaining teeth
- Reduced facial aesthetics
- Natural interplay between teeth and jawbone is disrupted
- Hollowed cheek
- Emotional consequences
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a titanium post surgically implanted into the jawbone. The implant functions as the tooth’s root and has three parts:
Dental implant – titanium post surgically implanted into the jawbone to serve as the root of the tooth.
Abutment – Connects the dental implant to the replacement tooth.
Dental crown – Tooth-coloured replacement tooth.
