Dental implants are basically artificial tooth roots that are placed in your jawbone to support a replaced tooth, dental bridges or dentures. Our teeth are meant to last long, but sometimes we may encounter a broken tooth. And when you have a missing or a broken tooth, you should get a replacement as soon as possible. If you have a missing tooth, you may face problems in chewing, unwanted tooth movement, cavities, bone deterioration, and even loss of other teeth. Therefore, replacing a broken tooth is important for good dental health. When it comes to replacing a missing or broken tooth, your dentist may suggest dental implant treatment.
