Make a Good Impression
Having missing teeth can affect your self-confidence and lower your self-esteem. It can also contribute to other serious oral health issues. But missing teeth don’t just affect how you see yourself, they also have an impact on how others see you — and it often isn’t in a good way. We believe that a healthy smile reflects an overall healthier you. Read on to discover the missing tooth replacement treatment we highly recommend.
The Dental Implant ⸺ the Next Best Thing to Natural Teeth
There are many options available to replace a missing tooth, including the dental implant. There are over 500,000 implants placed in the U.S. each year. We feel nothing beats the dental implant because it can be color-matched to look like your natural teeth in appearance, and the implant is strong and stable, offering the same functionality as your natural teeth. While it does involve a surgical procedure to place the titanium post in your jaw, an implant doesn’t require the modification of adjacent teeth, unlike some other replacement options.
Another reason we recommend implants is their versatility. An implant can be used to replace one tooth or many. An option when an entire arch needs replacement is our hybrid denture, where a full denture is held in place with as few as four implants — providing you with a more stable, permanent, and comfortable solution over dentures alone.
Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper brushing and flossing and regular checkups. You can eat the foods you like again, and you can speak and smile with confidence.
