It is important for all missing teeth to be replaced, however, teeth missing from the front of the mouth tend to take priority for most people as the gaps are more visible. Noticeable gaps can significantly impact a person’s self-confidence, to the point where they are embarrassed to smile in photos, talk openly in conversation or even attend social occasions.
The most common reasons people get front tooth implants is when a tooth has been knocked out during sport or damaged during a trauma, causing it to rot away. Other people may have lost their front teeth because of a disease or infection or in some cases, the teeth just never properly develop. Whatever the reason, if you have a front tooth missing it is highly important to replace it. Gaps can lead to serious self-confidence issues, not only because of their unsightly appearance but also because they can inhibit your ability to bite into and tear foods. Canines are some of the strongest teeth in the mouth and once these have been lost or removed, it can be very difficult to eat certain foods. Missing front teeth can also cause further problems with your oral health and even cause the jawbone above or below the gap to recede, causing you to look much older than you are.
Dental implants are the closest thing you can get to real teeth. They look, act and feel just like the rest of your teeth and can last a lifetime if looked after properly. The implant itself is made up of a titanium screw which is surgically placed into the jawbone to prevent the bone from receding. An abutment is then placed on top and a carefully designed crown added to give the aesthetically accurate appearance of a real tooth.
Dental implants for front teeth are particularly effective as they are completely secure, allowing you to bite down on your food without worrying that your replacement will come loose or fall out. The implant is also specially designed from a mould of your mouth so that it matches the rest of your teeth and restores your smile without anyone ever knowing you are wearing an implant.
When Patricia came to Ten Implant Centre, she had multiple missing front teeth that were causing her to feel uncomfortable with her appearance. After assessing her case, we treated her with a combination of dental implants, grafting and crowns. In Pat’s words, it “changed her life”. Here are the before and after results of her implant treatment.
