When you lose a tooth it usually is best for your oral health to have it replaced. Missing teeth compromise your “bite” and decrease your ability to chew properly. It may increase the stress on the surrounding teeth and compromise their longevity. They affect the support for jaws and may trigger TMJ, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. Depending on the location in your mouth, a missing tooth can also have a very negative impact on your smile and appearance, or even your speech
Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. Once the implants are completed, one gains the ability to eat virtually anything and allows one to smile once again with confidence. With current technology, most implants are actually much stronger than the teeth they are replacing.

We will gladly answer any questions that could arise before and after the actual procedures to put any concerns at ease. With proper care, dental implants will last a lifetime.
