The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth

It can be easy to get used to missing teeth over time, but the reasons to replace them are many.

  • A full smile gives you great confidence
  • Gaps in-between teeth are harmful for surrounding teeth
  • If you don’t fill gaps, tooth decay and plaque are more likely to develop
  • Lose full function of the mouth

Fixing Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Figuring out how dental implants work can be confusing, so we’re breaking down the process. It’s really pretty simple. Replacing teeth with dental implants can be a lengthy process – sometimes taking a few months to fully complete, but the reward of a beautiful, long-lasting smile is worth it.

  1. First X-rays and impressions of your teeth will be made.
  2. Next, the implant will be placed. This is a surgical procedure where an anesthetic is given to eliminate pain. We will make a small incision in the gums to insert the implant into the jaw bone. This gives a sturdy post for the tooth to stay on.
  3. Once the implant is placed, the healing process begins so your implant can fully fuse to the jawbone.
  4. After the healing process from the implants, an abutment (also known as a dental crown) is placed on the implant to prepare it for the false tooth. The abutment will support the new false tooth.
  5. Now, after that appointment, your false tooth can be placed (a custom crown) and your process is complete.
