Tooth Loss is More Common Than You Think
If you are missing any number of teeth, there is no need to feel embarrassed. You are not alone—over 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. However, you will want to replace your missing teeth as soon as possible. When you are missing a tooth, your jaw bone is no longer being stimulated by the tooth root and begins to deteriorate from lack of use. This causes surrounding teeth to shift, leading to changes in your bite and facial appearance and can even cause additional tooth loss. The ideal solution for those with missing teeth are dental implants, due to both their cosmetic and functional benefits.

Implant Supported Dentures
Dental Implants Function like Natural Teeth
Dental implants are meant to mimic the functions of natural teeth, which is why they are considered the gold standard of tooth replacement. The implant process involves surgically placing a titanium implant or implants into the jaw bone, which will function as the “tooth root.” After a period of healing, an abutment and a natural-looking crown are attached. The implant post stimulates your jaw bone and promotes growth, and the crown provides natural cosmetic appearance and a strong, stable bite. For those who have been told they have insufficient bone to support an implant, a bone graft may be necessary before the implant procedure itself.
