Missing Tooth

Losing one or more of your teeth can cause a gap in your smile, the loss of chewing function and the inability to eat a complete diet. While these are certainly serious issues, a potentially bigger problem lies hidden beneath the surface: bone loss.

Without the tooth to stimulate the jaw, the bone beneath it will begin to shrink (atrophy) in the same manner that muscle underneath a cast gets smaller. Since your facial bone supports the skin and muscles on top of it, losing volume can cause your face to look prematurely aged. The good news is that dental implants offer a solution to stop bone loss.


Tooth replacement options

Conventional treatment options for tooth replacement, Crown & Bridge and full or partial   dentures, address the short-term cosmetic problem of the missing teeth, but do nothing
to stop the bone loss. Crown & Bridge also requires that two or more healthy teeth be ground down to serve as abutments (anchors) for a bridge, leaving them at a much greater risk for cavities and endodontic failure.
Tooth replacement with dental implants
With implants, however, the healthy teeth are not compromised. Plus, dental implants, like natural teeth, transmit chewing forces to the jaw, stimulating it and halting the bone loss. This is why many leading dental organizations recognize dental implants as the standard of care for tooth replacement.

Missing a Tooth!
Replacing a missing tooth: crown on implant. If you are missing one tooth including the root, the dental crown is attached to a dental implant. The implant serves as a foundation for a dental crown. This method does not affect your other healthy adjacent teeth.
Missing Several Teeth!
Bridge on implants uses modern technology. A durable bridge with natural-looking replacement teeth is securely positioned on dental implants. Healthy, adjacent teeth are left untouched. Dental implants are strong, biocompatible fixtures made of titanium, that act just like natural tooth roots.
Life with Dentures?
Removable overdentures on an implant bar. For an even more secure fit, a dental bar is fixed to your jaw bone with two or more implants, providing stronger support for your removable dentures. Your new teeth can be removed for cleaning and the need for denture adhesives is eliminated.
