Most people probably don’t think that orthodontics (braces) and implants go together, but they can in the right circumstances. Both braces and implants may help prevent tooth decay and gum disease, improve a person’s appearance, and prevent dental injuries. They help build a person’s confidence and improve their smile.
Sports are popular among adults and children alike. Competitive sports among professionals and school children happen daily, as do recreational amateur sports, and sports conducted for exercise. But any physical activity is associated with some form of physical (and dental) risk. When a dental injury as a result of sports activity is too severe, you may lose one or multiple teeth. Dental implants offer an ideal solution to replace these teeth permanently. They allow you to retain your facial appearance and structure as well as sustain functional strength and bite force.
