Everybody is going to lose their tooth by the time they reach adulthood. Most of us might think that this is only a cosmetic issue and neglect it. But, failing to replace a missing tooth can result in a myriad of other dental issues like bone loss, shifting bite, and food impaction. Single tooth dental implants in Little Rock are the best way to replace a missing tooth and they can last for a lifetime.
Teeth serve a major role in the human body, beyond just helping us in eating and speaking. The roots of our teeth go deep into the jaws and skull to stimulate the bone. If a tooth is missing, the bone will not stimulate and will ultimately become weak. Losing a tooth increases the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, malocclusion, and facial deformities.
If you're missing a single tooth, the first things that come into your mind are dental crowns and bridges. However, they aren't suitable for a missing tooth and don’t have the longest life span. That's the reason why our Dentist at Little Rock, Dr. Cloud and Dr. Hill provide single-tooth dental implants for a single missing tooth to restore functionality and smile.
