There are many long-term effects of missing teeth; including: periodontal disease, jaw joint problems, headaches, and more. Also, believe it or not, missing just a few teeth can negatively affect your speech and also make social interactions challenging.
Although there are several ways to replace missing or broken teeth, dental implants are by far the most permanent. Many patients with partials and denture complain of loose or uncomfortable appliances as time goes on. When dental implants are placed, they actually help stabilize the jaw bone in the surrounding area and can last a lifetime.

Dentures and Partials may have been the most logical option when you first lost your teeth. Unfortunately as time goes on, the bone forming cells underneath the appliance are not stimulated properly to create new bone. In turn, the partial or denture simply covering the empty space gets loose as the bone level drops. A cycle of relines and/or denture paste does nothing to restore bone that has been lost and these types of appliances can become very sore. Dental implants provide a permanent solution to missing teeth that will actually protect the jaw bone and allow you to eat, speak and chew comfortably for good.
When it is not supporting a natural tooth or implant, the jawbone deteriorates, losing its strength and firmness. Facial bones provide support to overlying cheek, nose, lips, and skin. A denture or bridge cannot protect from bone loss because they are not anchored in the jawbone like implants. Implants stimulate ‘bone remodeling,’ a natural process in which bone cells are continuously broken down and build back up. Implants stimulate and maintains bone volume, density, and shape of facial bones allowing you to maintain that youthful look you want.
Our patients love their new implants because of their improved appearance, function, comfort and health. When you go out in public, you will never have to cover your mouth with your hand or put off eating out of fear of a denture popping out or gagging you. Also, the improved appearance of your new smile will have people giving you compliments that you’ve never gotten before.
Single dental implants are the perfect solution to replace a previously extracted tooth or tooth damaged by decay or trauma. Enhance your appearance and protect your smile from harmful effects of missing teeth.
All on 4 dental implants, All-on-6, or mini-dental implants are a great option for full upper or lower smile restoration. Often they can be placed without the need for extensive bone grafting and are an excellent tooth replacement alternative to dentures.
Multiple missing teeth can be replaced with implant bridges or multiple dental implants. Implants are more comfortable, perform better, and last longer than traditional partial dentures or bridges.
Stabilized dentures may be the right option if you are struggling with uncomfortable, painful, or ill-fitting dentures. Implant dentures provide more support and strength. They can snap-in or be permanent dentures. In some cases your existing denture may be able to be modified to be supported by implants.
