A missing tooth is the most obvious dental malformity, and often presents the dentist’s biggest technical challenge. Missing teeth can also undermine a person’s self-confidence and quality of life. Not only can missing teeth compromise eating habits, speech and appearance, the condition can also lead to bone loss in the jaw and the abnormal shifting of the other teeth, as well as bite problems. Missing teeth often causes the look of premature aging.

Dental implants have become one of our favorite ways to replace missing teeth. You don’t have to go through life enduring discomfort, avoiding certain foods, risking bone loss, changes to your facial structure, and bracing for embarrassing situations. Dental implants offer a great long term solution to missing teeth. Used extensively for over 40 years, they are very safe and highly successful. Acting as a substitute tooth root, implants bond with the bone to form a stable foundation for permanent replacement teeth, that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
