Dental implants replace missing teeth down to the root and have numerous advantages. Did you know that millions of people in the United States have one or more missing teeth? If you have a missing tooth, know you're not alone and you have options!

Whether you have one missing tooth or several missing teeth, our team would love to speak with you about your tooth replacement options. Modern tooth replacements like dental implants can transform your oral health, smile, and confidence. Dental implants can give you the functional, natural-looking smile you deserve.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace teeth, from the root deep below the gums to the visible part of the tooth known as the crown. A dental implant consists of a titanium screw-like post that connects to a tooth restoration, like an artificial crown or bridge. 

The dental implant procedure is painless and involves making an incision in the gums to place the implant post. Over a matter of months, the jawbone joins with the implant post through a process called osseointegration. Once the gums and bone heal, we can place your final restoration, and you'll once again be able to eat, speak, laugh, and smile with comfort and confidence. 

Why Should I Replace Missing Teeth?

Tooth loss can affect various aspects of our lives, from our diet and speech to social interactions and overall health. Tooth loss can lead to an altered bite, unclear speech, low self-esteem, and compromised comfort. The periodontal pocket becomes susceptible to bacteria and infection when you lose a tooth. Also, tooth loss can shrink your jawbone and atrophy, resulting in fractures, a bad bite, and additional tooth loss. Dental implants fill the space below the gums and connect to the jawbone, strengthening and stimulating the bone. 

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants? 

Dental implants are the gold standard of tooth replacement because they resemble natural teeth in appearance, function, and comfort. Unlike removable tooth replacements like dentures, dental implants are secure and stable––there's no shifting or moving around in the mouth. Plus, they integrate into the jawbone, becoming an immovable part of your mouth's anatomy.
