Few things can impact the health and appearance of your smile as much as having severely damaged or missing teeth. Along with taking away from its visual appeal, damaged or missing teeth can lead to other serious dental concerns, including pain, shifting teeth, and bone erosion. Fortunately, you don’t have to live with a damaged smile or dental restorations that no longer look or feel as natural as your own teeth. With dental implants, you can replace your missing teeth and improve your quality of life. Here’s what you need to know about dental implants before scheduling your appointment at Mayfaire Family Dentistry.
