Dental Implants

Whether you have lost a tooth due to an accident, gum disease or deterioration, it is important to replace the missing tooth with a dental implant right away to prevent cosmetic and functional damage to their remaining teeth.

Once you lose a tooth, your entire mouth is placed under stress; you have fewer teeth to chew your food with, and the teeth surrounding the missing tooth begin to shift and lean into the gap, leading to pain and reduced chewing efficiency. Most people who lose a tooth also become very self-conscious about their smile, leaving them feeling uncomfortable in social situations.
