A missing tooth can have a negative impact on your life in many ways. Having missing teeth might take away from your self-confidence, you probably don’t smile as big as you might if you had confidence in your smile. Missing teeth can affect your speech as well, poor-fitting dentures can slip within the mouth, causing you to slur your words.

Missing teeth have a negative influence on more than just your looks and confidence, they can cause serious health and hygiene problems. A missing tooth can cause other teeth to drift and move, which not only stops you from eating foods that you love, but can cause other serious problems such as the continued loss of bone mass where your tooth used to be.

Dental implants are a great alternative to dentures. Dentures often come loose, causing slurred speech and reducing the kinds of foods you can eat. Dental implants free you from having to go through the inconvenient and often embarrassing task of removing dentures and the sticky adhesive that keeps them in place.

Dental implants are also a great alternative to a tooth bridge. They don’t require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.

Get back to feeling confident when you talk, smile, and laugh. Get back to eating to foods you love, have a big steak, a rack of ribs, or a piece of corn on the cob. Chew a stick of gum or enjoy a piece of candy with friends and family. Stop letting tooth problems get in the way of your life.

Thanks to the use of anesthesia and pain-killers, you can be sedated so that you will not feel the pain and discomfort during the process. A metal anchor is secured in your jawbone, after the jaw and gums have had time to heal, a custom-made implant is placed on the anchor, giving you a permanent and reliable solution.
