Dr. Johnson on dental implants
It’s important that you replace missing teeth because all the teeth around it are supported by that tooth. My background’s engineering. We look at the machine, and if part of the machine’s missing, the other parts are gonna have to do more work, and they’re gonna fail sooner. And so that’s one of the main aspects of why we need to get a tooth replaced if we’re missing one. And not only that, but an implant, for example, will replace that single tooth, for example, without addressing the other teeth, so we’re not damaging the other teeth. We place an implant and restore that function, as well as the aesthetics that can be established with that.
