If you have been told that you require a dental extraction, one of your first thoughts beyond the procedure itself will almost certainly be about how you can replace the gap in your smile. Missing teeth can cause problems with eating and speaking, as well as have a detrimental effect on how you feel about the appearance of your smile. Have you previously lost single or multiple teeth, but are dissatisfied with your current archetypal restoration, which could be a bridge or denture? These conventional solutions have many limitations that can prove frustrating for patients. Perhaps then it is little wonder that so many people are now turning to dental implants to replace their missing teeth.
