Most patients expect their teeth to last a lifetime, but that is not always the case. Whether you lose teeth due to dental trauma or disease, it is important to get them replaced as soon as possible. When you are missing teeth, you may experience issues with your bite and chewing function. Even missing one tooth can affect the health and function of the remaining teeth. When you are missing a tooth, the remaining teeth may shift or weaken over time.
Patients who are missing teeth often deal with low self-esteem because they are embarrassed by their smile. Dental implants can help restore beauty, health, and function to your smile. Dental implants can be used to restore one or more missing teeth while promoting a healthier smile.

Benefits of Dental Implants
A dental implant is a tooth replacement solution that mimics the whole tooth structure. The titanium screw is surgically implanted into the jaw bone. Once the screw fuses with the jawbone, an abutment is attached. After the abutment is placed, a dental crown, bridge, or denture is attached to create a natural-looking, beautiful smile.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
- Dental implants function like your natural teeth. Dental implants help restore proper bite and chewing function, allowing patients to eat, drink, and perform their normal oral hygiene routine without restriction.
- Dental implants prevent further bone loss. When you lose a tooth the bone around the tooth begins to deteriorate due to lack of stimulation. Dental implants replace the tooth root which helps stimulates the jaw bone and encourages bone growth.
- Dental implants may help reduce your risk of gum disease. Patients with missing teeth are at a higher risk of developing gum disease and other complex dental issues. Replacing missing teeth can help improve your oral health.
