Although our teeth were designed to last an entire lifetime, sometimes they do not. It is critical to your overall health and to the health of your other teeth to replace missing teeth. Dental implants have been a solution for failed or missing teeth for more than 50 years! Not only can missing teeth lead to loss of self-esteem due to poor appearance, but ignoring missing teeth can lead to a loss in chewing ability, as well as other problems like crowned teeth and tooth loss.
Dental implants are an effective treatment choice for missing or failing teeth, and are generally more effective than other alternatives, such as bridgework and endodontic treatment.
