Just losing one tooth can throw off the entire oral health system as tooth loss leads to bone atrophy and leaves neighboring teeth unsupported. Patients missing multiple teeth face even greater risks to their oral health. Since many people who have suffered tooth loss feel incomplete, embarrassed of their appearance and might socially isolate themselves due to depression and anxiety, missing teeth impacts one’s emotional well being, as well. We understand that losing a tooth is a delicate emotional issue, however, we encourage patients to explore their tooth replacement options as soon as possible because bone can atrophy quite rapidly, and bone loss can affect a person’s candidacy for certain treatments.

What Are Dental Implants?
They are small fixtures that are designed like natural teeth. Each fixture has a root form, usually made of titanium, that is surgically implanted in your jawbone. A fixture of the correct width and length is chosen to replace the missing tooth. A dental crown is secured to the implant, so it looks completely natural. Usually, one implant is used to replace each missing tooth.
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants have become a very popular option for those needing replacement teeth. The reasons for this popularity include the following:
Implants last longer
Bridges and dentures do not provide support for the underlying bone structure in the jaw. Over time, the bone begins to dissolve where teeth are missing. Dental implants are imbedded directly into the jawbone and consequently protect the integrity of the bone structure.
Implants are more comfortable
Bridges and dentures can feel bulky in the mouth. Since implants are implanted directly into the gums and jaw, most patients forget that they even have implants.
Implants look more natural
Due to the material used for implants and the method in which they are implanted, most people cannot tell that you have dental implants. You can smile, eat, and speak with confidence!
