Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

A Missing Tooth Can Cause Other Problems

Don't think that missing a tooth is no big deal. There are various complications that can result from just one lost tooth. The most important function of your teeth is chewing. Missing teeth can mean getting fewer nutrients from the food you consume. Difficulty chewing also may lead to softer, less healthy food choices that can lead to gained weight. Speech can also be altered as certain words are slurred or mispronounced. When teeth are lost, bone deterioration occurs in the jaw, creating a "sunken" look that may make you look older than you are.

We recommend dental implants for as many teeth as you have missing. They will let you chew every type of food, recapture a great smile, and return your confidence. They look so natural, no one will know they're not your original teeth.
