Is it necessary to replace missing teeth?

Yes! Having missing teeth will evolve into a cascade of problems. It starts with shifting of teeth, resulting in other teeth taking more abuse because they are compensating for the missing teeth. This will lead to eventual jaw pain, gum recession, bone loss, and loss of more teeth.

Having missing teeth also causes improper chewing of food, resulting in swallowing large chunks of food instead of grinding it down into smaller pieces. The swallowing of large pieces of food will result in more gastric acid secretions, difficulty in digestion, and cause other gastrointestinal problems.

What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?

Dental implants are a popular, safe, and effective way to replace missing teeth and are designed to blend in with your other teeth. Dental implants are an excellent long-term option for restoring your smile. In fact, the development and use of implants is one of the biggest advances in dentistry in the past 40 years. Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. They are posts that are placed in the upper or lower jaw, where they function as a sturdy anchor for replacement teeth.

Do dental implants hurt?

It is normal to experience slight sensitivity, and some minor swelling over where the implant were placed for 2-3 days. It's like going to the gym, the body feels some soreness the next day after a good workout. So to answer the question, there wont be any major pain, but feeling a bit sore is normal and will be controlled with anti-inflammatory medication.
