An estimated 178 million people are missing teeth in the United States. If you are one of them, do not worry. Instead, get a dental implant and crown at our office in Phoenix, AZ. An implant crown can do some important things for you.
Complete Your Smile
A missing tooth can affect your confidence by changing the appearance of your smile. It also may affect the way you speak. Both of these can make you self-conscious about your missing tooth.
By getting an implant-supported crown, you can have a complete smile again.
Prevent More Lost Teeth
A single missing tooth can have a domino effect on your smile. When you lose a tooth, you experience bone loss in your jaw. At the same time, the missing tooth can allow your remaining teeth to drift. Those issues raise your risk of more in the future.
A crown and implant combination can prevent bone loss and drifting.
Sustain Your Healthy Bite
When it comes to eating, you want to be able to eat a variety of food, both for the sake of your health and for your enjoyment of meals. With an implant and crown, you can bite and chew as well as you could before you lost your tooth.
