Consider this:

  • Individuals with missing teeth often feel self-conscious when they smile or talk. This negative self-image can lead to embarrassment, stress, depression, lower self-esteem and social isolation.
  • Tooth loss can lead to poor eating habits. A poor diet lacking in fresh fruit and vegetables can lead to poor nutrition, and vitamin deficiencies may be unfortunate consequences.
  • The loss of even one tooth can act as the catalyst for other serious oral issues involving your teeth, gums and jaw. When an individual’s bite is altered, adjacent teeth can decay faster and become more susceptible to periodontal gum infection. The teeth that are on either side of the lost tooth can shift into the now open space. Additionally, missing teeth can eventually lead to jaw bone loss and atrophy. As a result, facial features can change, which ages your appearance and stresses remaining teeth. Your ability to successfully replace missing teeth in the future may be complicated or compromised by not doing it soon after they are lost.

Dental Implant FAQ’s

Why are the advantages of having a periodontist place dental implants?
Periodontics is one of ten dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association.  Periodontists have traditionally formed long-term relationships with patients and their restorative dentists. They make a thorough diagnosis in light of the patient’s dental and medical health. Periodontists are specifically trained in the placement and long-term maintenance of dental implants, and their expertise in managing soft tissue and the jawbone is of great benefit to the patient in all aspects of implant dentistry.

What is the best way to replace a missing tooth?
In most cases, dental implants are considered the standard of care for replacing missing teeth.  The restorative phase of dental implant treatment is completed by your restorative dentist.

Is implant surgery comfortable? 
Most patients are pleased to find out that implant procedures usually cause only minimal discomfort and may be more comfortable than other dental procedures such as extractions.  Prior to and during procedures, oral sedation, local anesthesia and intravenous sedation may be used to keep patients comfortable. Following treatment, over-the-counter pain medication is recommended. Prescription medicine is also available if needed.
