Tooth Loss and Implant Dentistry Procedures
Whether you have had a tooth extracted or are missing teeth for other reasons, it is very important to have teeth replaced as soon as possible. You may experience jaw bone loss when a tooth is missing because the bone is no longer stimulated by the tooth root. Implant dentistry makes it easy for us to replace missing teeth so that the tooth replacement functions just like your real tooth and stimulates the jaw bone.
Implant dentistry boasts a high success rate and continues to be a viable solution for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants can prevent jaw bone loss because they are fused directly into the bone. They are also resistant to tooth decay and will not shift or move around like dentures, which is often uncomfortable for the wearer.
