Dental emergencies happen more often than you would think. We know most dental disease is preventable, however once a problem is identified treatment should be completed in a timely manner. The mouth is a sensitive area and can become very painful, very quickly. Incomplete treatment leads to unnecessary problems,

Did you know that just under half of the US adult population is missing at least one tooth? Tooth loss is unfortunately common, but still most people coming into my office needing a dental implant feel alone and embarrassed. They shouldn’t. You shouldn’t. There are many reasons why tooth loss occurs,
The fact that we only grow one set of adult teeth exemplifies the importance of proper dental care; if a tooth is lost because of a dental disease, or due to a dental injury, it won’t grow back. Its loss, however, can seriously affect the rest of your oral health by throwing your bite off-balance,
Over the last few decades, dental implants have taken the world of teeth replacement by storm. As the only prosthetic option that can replace lost teeth’s roots, dental implants offer unmatched stability for your replacement teeth (i.e., dental bridge, partial, or complete denture). While the art of replacing lost teeth has been a vital part of dentistry for thousands of years,
If you are missing a single tooth, it can be tempting to take the easiest and quickest way out. If the missing tooth is in a hard-to-see spot and does not affect your smile, you may even choose to ignore it. However, neglecting to replace a missing tooth can have devastating effects on your overall dental health.

If you have lost a tooth, there is perhaps no better method of replacing it than with a dental implant. These dental miracles are capable of replacing a tooth with a prosthetic that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. But the benefits of dental implants run deeper than that. Below the surface of the gum line,
If you lose a tooth, the prospect can be pretty bleak. A phenomenon known as “the domino effect” can sometimes follow a lost tooth. The domino effect occurs when a lost tooth triggers further tooth loss, so that teeth begin falling like stacked dominos. A missing tooth can also lead to jawbone density problems and a particularly nasty condition known as facial collapse.
The most secure method for tooth replacement is the dental implant. An implant will not only replace a missing tooth, but will keep the jawbone stimulated to deter degeneration. Depending on how many teeth need to be replaced and where the teeth are located, patients may need a singular crown or a bridge, both of which can be permanently secured with implants.
