Lost a tooth in a sports injury? Single tooth implants can give you back your smile

Tuesday, November 07, 2017 Chris Wood

Losing a tooth is many people’s worst nightmare, as not only is it an uncomfortable experience but it can also make chewing difficult, and seriously affect your smile too.

Many people have lost a tooth in a sports injury due to having their mouth knocked by another player or a piece of equipment, and if this has happened to you you might be wondering how you are going to get your smile back.

Single tooth implants are the perfect way to regain your confidence if you are missing a tooth as they look and feel natural so you will hardly notice that you don’t still have your original tooth in place.


This procedure may take a few trips to your dentist (or with the latest techniques even just two), but the time and cost spent getting it right will be completely worth it once you have your full smile back.

A single tooth implant is carefully placed into an opening made in your jawbone by an implant dentist and can last more than 25 years if it is properly taken care of through cleaning and flossing like you would with your natural teeth.

It is very rare to experience issues such as infections when you get a single tooth implant, but if you do decide to have one and do have any problems you just need to ensure that you visit your dentist who will be able to help you.

Through choosing to have a single tooth implant fitted after your sports injury you can ensure that you get your natural smile back with no hassle, so you don’t need to worry about learning to live without a tooth!
