When you lose a permanent tooth, it affects your smile and your quality of life — no matter where the tooth was located. If your smile has gaps from missing teeth, it’s best to get a replacement tooth as soon as you can. If you’re unsure whether you need a dental implant in Lockport, consider the following questions:
- Am I having trouble eating regularly and enjoying foods I used to love?
- Do I feel self-conscious about showing my smile because of my missing teeth?
- Have I noticed my smile shifting or my other teeth moving around in my mouth?
- Am I tired of dealing with dentures or temporary solutions to fix my smile?
- Does my face look sunken in or older than it did before I lost my tooth?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you probably need a dental implant. That’s because the most common indicators for needing dental implants are:
- Sunken-in facial look
- Loss of jaw bone
- Difficulty eating and speaking due to tooth loss
- Other natural teeth shifting in your smile
Dental implants can restore your smile and improve your quality of life. If you think you may benefit from a dental implant, chances are, you’re right! To learn more about our dental implants in Lockport, NY, please call Dr. Igor Kaplansky today at (716) 772-7500.
