Once you lose a tooth, the immediate solution is to replace it, especially if it is a front tooth, but what happens, when you lose a tooth that is not visible when you smile? The tendency is to ignore it.
However, any missing tooth can have a negative impact on your quality of life, as well as dental and oral health. When we chew, a healthy tooth strengthens the quality of the bone; similar to how exercise protects against bone loss. Furthermore, when a tooth is missing, healthy teeth tend to shift position towards the gap due to bone loss, affecting how our upper and lower teeth meet.
This may affect how we place pressure on the teeth when chewing and have an impact on surrounding muscles and joints, resulting in pain and various other symptoms such as headaches or migraines. Hence, each tooth plays an important role in ensuring that teeth in front of and behind it stay in alignment as well as maintaining the health of the jaw bone.
A ceramic crown on implant restores any tooth that is destroyed or damaged. It is individually made to match the shade and contour of your natural teeth, so practically no one can tell the difference.
If you are missing one tooth including the root, the dental crown is attached to a dental implant. The implant serves as a foundation for a dental crown. This method does not affect your other healthy adjacent teeth.
