The Effects of Tooth Loss
Losing one or more natural teeth can lead to complications that far outweigh losing the aesthetics of a smile. Missing teeth make eating, chewing, and speaking more difficult and cause deterioration of the jaw bone. Even the loss of a single tooth increases the likelihood of adjacent teeth shifting, which can lead to misalignment of the bite. These oral health challenges have many patients turning to dental implants, one of the most ideal tooth replacement options in dentistry today.
Our Dental Implant Process
Dental implants can be used to restore a single tooth or multiple missing teeth [link to full arch dental implants page], giving vibrancy and function back to your smile. Our experienced in-house periodontist will place your dental implant using guided implant technology to virtually eliminate any room for error during surgery and improve outcome success. During the procedure, a dental implant post is screwed into the jaw bone and will integrate with the existing bone during the healing phase. When the dental implant is securely healed in the jaw, Dr. Candace Colella will restore a custom and life-like dental crown onto the dental implant. As a whole restoration, dental implants stimulate the jaw bone, prevent further bone loss, and provide a strong and aesthetic artificial tooth. With dental implants, it is nearly impossible for anyone to notice you do not have your natural tooth!Watch Video
