Your smile says great things about you. Don't let tooth loss to stop you from smiling. Cosmetic dentistry has many tooth-replacement options that allow you to get back your youthful appearance and restore the function of your teeth. One which we might recommend is a dental implant.

After placement, the implants integrates with your jaw bone and act as artificial tooth roots. An abutment which is like a post that gets attached to the implants which holds your replacement teeth.

Implants are recommended for qualified candidates to help deter bone loss which will occur when a tooth is lost. When teeth are lost, bone tend to shrink as it's not being used leading to changes in the facial structure creating saggy old appearance. Bone loss prevention is a key in keeping you look younger.
