Why replace missing teeth
with dental implants?
When a tooth is lost it leaves a socket with a hole. That hole is filled by the surrounding bone moving
into replace the space where the tooth has been lost. Over time this can result in a loss of bone in that area, known as bone resorption.
The teeth are also in fine balance in your mouth, when one is removed adjacent teeth can tip into the gap and opposing teeth can over-erupt. Dental implants can help support not only the bone around the missing tooth but also the adjacent teeth and opposing tooth.
This has long-term advantages
for your dental health.
