Are missing teeth causing you to miss out on life?
Missing teeth and loose dentures make too many people sit on the sidelines and let life pass them by. Modern dental implant treatments can replace everything from a single missing tooth to a completely set of teeth. Don’t let another day go by without taking this important first step to restoring your confidence and your smile!
Stop the bone loss that can lead to premature aging.
Losing one or more of your teeth starts a chain of events that can have dire physical and cosmetic consequences. The most obvious result is a gap in your smile. Less obvious is the loss of chewing function and the inability to eat a complete diet that can result from tooth loss. While these are certainly serious issues, a potentially bigger problem lies hidden beneath the surface: bone loss.
Your jawbone needs the chewing action from teeth to stimulate it and maintain its strength. Otherwise it will begin to disappear (atrophy) in the same was unused muscles get smaller. Without the support of your teeth and facial bones, your face will begin to look prematurely aged. Tooth replacement using dental implants helps prevent bone loss.
