The loss of teeth can affect your self-esteem and cause you to feel embarrassed. Fortunately, there are several treatment options to help you replace a missing tooth, and each offers its own specific benefits. In particular, we invite you to learn more about dental implants and how they can restore your smile.

Dental implants are highly durable and can restore a natural feeling to your smile. Furthermore, the dental implant restorations are custom crafted to match the size, shape, and color of your neighboring teeth.

First, the dental implant is placed in the jawbone, which helps to stimulate bone growth and prevent the loss of bone as a result of missing teeth. If you choose to receive an implant, you will need to take proper care of your teeth to maintain the health and appearance of the implant, and we also suggest that you brush and floss daily, quit using any tobacco products, and schedule routine dental checkups.

Following the placement of a dental implant, you can once again comfortably chew and eat your food, and because your implant is attached to the jawbone, you can trust it to be sturdy and allow you to clearly pronounce words that were once hampered by missing teeth.
