Why Replace Missing Teeth With Dental Implants?
Missing teeth can be detrimental to the quality of a life. Associated with a whole range of oral and systemic health concerns, it is essential to replace lost teeth.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that replaces the tooth root which will help avoid bone loss in your jaw. Not many people realize that the most common cause of bone loss is tooth loss. A tooth and its root stimulate the bone surrounding it. Once they are gone, the bone will immediately begin to deteriorate. If left untreated, jaw bone loss can lead to the appearance of facial collapse. An implant will avoid bone loss allowing patients to keep a natural face shape.
Dental implants are changing the way dentists replace missing teeth. Dental implants have allowed people with missing teeth to rediscover the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. Dental implants offer a permanent solution to missing teeth. Dental implants offer patients naturally beautiful and confident smiles.
If you are missing one tooth or all of your teeth and want to restore the health, function, and beauty to your smile, Dr. Weinstock can help. We will provide a dental/radiographic examination and conduct a thorough health history inquiry. During your comprehensive consultation visit, Dr. Weinstock will take the time to discuss your specific oral health and cosmetic concerns. Your questions and concerns are important to us, and our team will work with you very closely to help ensure predictable and natural looking results.
