  1. TRUE or FALSE  Adult tooth loss is not a big deal as it has no long-term effects on your oral health.
  2. TRUE or FALSE  A dental implant replaces the roots of your tooth.
  3. TRUE or FALSE  A dental implant only supports a dental crown.

Answer Key

  1. FALSE. Adult tooth loss is a big deal because it can have long-term effects on your oral health. Losing a tooth as an adult can affect the way your mouth functions. You may have issues biting, chewing, and even speaking. A lost tooth may create a blank space in your smile’s appearance. Tooth loss can also weaken your jaw bone by causing the loss of bone density. Replacing a tooth with a dental implant can help to offset some of these effects.
  2. TRUE. A dental implant replaces the roots of your tooth and it is inserted where the roots of the tooth once were.
  3. FALSE. A dental implant can support a dental crown, but it can also support a bridge or full or partial dentures. Depending on the extent of your tooth loss, you and your dentist may decide which prosthetic is best for you.
