Do I Need Dental Implants? For many, missing teeth or loose dentures can present a problem. Missing teeth or loose dentures may affect your speech or your ability to chew properly. When teeth are missing, it can put additional stress on your remaining teeth and can lead to damage, including fractures or further tooth loss. If a missing tooth is not replaced, the surrounding teeth can shift. This could lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease in the hard-to-reach places created by shifting teeth where plaque and tartar can collect. Dental Implants can be a safe and long-lasting replacement for missing teeth. Implants are placed in a three-step process. Most healthy adults are a candidate for implants. To see if a dental implant or implant-retained denture would be a good fit for you, please call our office to schedule your consult today!
