Missing teeth pose a number of serious oral health issues. When a tooth is missing, bite tension is altered – a factor that can result in uneven tooth wear, excessive damage to remaining teeth, and additional tooth loss. What’s more, teeth adjacent to those missing will eventually slide into the empty space, further altering bite tension and strength.

When a tooth is missing so too is its root, and this allows your body to reabsorb the minerals surrounding the hole for use elsewhere. When these minerals are gone, the physical structure of the jaw changes, giving it a sunken or... Read More

Dental implants are unique among tooth replacement options in that they address the missing root, not the tooth itself. Inserted directly into bone, dental implants undergo the process of osseointegration, whereby they become accepted as a new part of the body. Once this process is complete and barring trauma or future issues such as advanced periodontitis, your dental implants will be a permanent part of your smile.
