You use your teeth to do so much in your everyday life – without them, you wouldn’t be able to speak or chew. Life happens and people can lose teeth for many reasons: they get older, they suffer from gum disease, or their teeth are knocked out from an injury.
Tooth implants also improve the quality of your oral health overall – it supports the function of a healthy bite and jawbone, and will prevent the bones in your jaw from deteriorating. Your jawbone may have started to deteriorate already since a tooth was already missing, as the tooth was what preserved the health of that jawbone in the first place.
Losing teeth is not only a physically painful experience, but it also comes with a range of emotions. Many people feel self-conscious about the appearance of their smile if they are missing teeth, and it can definitely impact your self-esteem.
Dental implants not only restore the cosmetic appearance of your smile, but can also help you chew food and speak with ease again. We want you to be able to eat comfortably, laugh and speak without pain, and go back to living your life.
Dental implants are a versatile way to restore your natural smile. They can be used to replace a single missing tooth or several teeth, depending on what you are looking for. An implant can:
- Secure a crown in place for a single tooth
- Secure a bridge for several missing teeth
- Replace the need for a removable denture
- Support any existing dentures in your mouth
- Also be used during orthodontic treatment
Due to their versatile nature, we can create a custom treatment plan for your dental implants, tailored to the results you hope to achieve.
