When you're growing up, losing your teeth feels like a rite of passage into adulthood. However, as an adult, experiencing tooth loss can be a distressing and costly experience that can affect your confidence and general health.
If you think back to your childhood, you might remember the set of prosthetic dentures, left suspended in a warm cup of water overnight at your grandparents' house. The idea of a whole new set of teeth that you could remove and replace from your mouth every day was commonplace for people who had suffered tooth loss and was the only real solution available.
Fast-forward a few decades, and modern oral surgery technology has afforded a whole new set of permanent solutions, known as dental implants. These implants are fixed in your mouth, and eliminate some of the common problems experienced with traditional dentures. Not to mention, they look great too.
There is nothing more eye-catching about a person than their smile but, unfortunately, it’s very common for many people to experience tooth loss as they age for a number of reasons. Missing teeth can cause self-confidence issues, feeling embarrassed about the condition of your teeth and you may find yourself not smiling as much as you used to.
