Replace Missing Teeth & Roots for a Stronger Bite

Bone loss is one of the biggest problems whenever anyone loses teeth. In fact, you can lose as much as 25 percent of your jawbone width in places where a single tooth is gone. That isn’t just bad for your bone health. It raises the risk that you could lose more teeth. The more teeth you are missing, the worse this bone loss will be.

The key to stopping this bone loss is replacing the roots of your missing teeth. Traditional dentures and bridges replace only the crowns of your teeth. Implants take the place of your missing roots.

Our team can restore your smile with implants using:

  • Dental Crown – If you’re missing just one tooth, your dentist can secure one of our same-day dental crowns to an implant placed in our office. This keeps your jawbone intact and prevents further tooth loss.
  • Dental Bridge – Replace several missing teeth with a dental bridge anchored to implants. In addition to keeping your jawbone strong, this eliminates the need to reshape healthy teeth to support a standard bridge.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – Avoid the sunken cheeks that come with bone loss by attaching implants to your dentures. This reduces wrinkles so you don’t look older than you are. You’ll also be able to chew your food easily for better digestion and improved overall health.

Modern implants have a 96 percent success rate. Whether you are getting implants to replace a single tooth or as part of full-mouth reconstruction, they can last the rest of your life with proper care. In most cases, this simply involves brushing and flossing and visiting us for regular dental cleanings.
