That gap in your smile is not going away on its own.
You tried to live without those teeth, but life just isn’t the same when you feel like you have to hide your smile. You also hesitate to speak now because your words don’t quite sound the same either.
Trying to eat has proven to be more difficult than you anticipated. You have trouble biting down on some foods and trouble chewing other things. It’s discouraging when eating should be one of the most basic things that you do during the day.
You have heard about dental implants, but you are trying to decide if they are right for you. To get answers to your questions so you can make an informed decision, schedule a consultation with Dr. Patel.

Build a Foundation for a Healthy Smile
Implants do something that no other dental service can do. They replace the roots of your missing teeth.
Roots do some important things for your healthy teeth. First, they anchor your teeth to your jawbone. This keeps your teeth secure and stable. That allows you to bite and chew with more than enough force to eat a wide variety of foods. This is is good for your oral health and your overall health.
That connection to your jawbone is valuable for another reason as well. Your roots stimulate your jaw, which leads to new bone tissue. This is essential for your jaw health. As older tissue is resorbed into the body, the new tissue replaces it to keep your jaw strong.
Without roots or implants to replace them, you are going to lose bone in your jaw. This causes the jaw to shrink, which can affect your appearance and lead to further dental problems.
With implants, you are creating a solid foundation to support your replacement teeth. Your dental bridge or dentures can feel as strong and secure as a healthy set of teeth. In other words, if it looks like teeth and functions like teeth, then they are your teeth.
Don’t Miss This Opportunity
Getting implants is a big decision. We understand that you may have concerns about this restorative procedure, and we are happy to answer any questions you may have. You deserve to have the information that you need to make the right decision for you.
It may help to think of implants as an investment in your long-term oral health. You could get dentures, but traditional dentures rest outside the gumline. They don’t provide the stimulation needed to prevent bone loss. As a result, your jaw will change shape over time, which causes dentures to feel looser. That means your dentures will need to be relined or replaced every few years.
If the bone loss is too great, you may need a bone graft to restore the health of your jaw. This is particularly needed if you decide to get implants later.
By acting now, you can prevent problems later. If the cost is a concern, please talk to us. We offer flexible payment options, including financing through our third-party partners, to help you manage the cost of your treatment.
