Tooth loss can occur for many different reasons – including advanced periodontal disease and trauma. Believe it or not, if you suffer from tooth loss you’re not alone. With over 178 million affected, tooth loss is extremely common among U.S. adults.
While dentures were the preferred method of replacing missing teeth for many years, patients are now realizing the long term functional and cosmetic benefits of dental implants. Dental implants are highly regarded as the ideal tooth replacement solution, in many cases.
While dentures and bridges are common solutions for missing teeth, they don’t offer patients the same advantages. With dental implants, both the roots and crowns of teeth are replaced resulting in greater stability, longevity, and cosmetic appeal. With proper care, the results are permanent, cosmetic and the closest to natural teeth you can achieve.
For patients currently using dentures as tooth replacement dental devices, there may be an experience of slipping or instability. Dentures are often unreliable when it comes to offering consistency in a stabilized foundation for daily activities. However, this issue can be remedied with the use of dental implants or other options, including implant supported dentures. This option offers a more stable and functional environment for your dentures, providing a beautiful new smile for you and highlights the diversity of dental implants.
If there is bone or tooth loss that prevents the placement of dentures, bone grafting procedures can be used along with sedation dentistry to provide a relaxing, anxiety free option to increase the chances of successful implantation and smile restoration.
While there are several options for treating tooth loss, it is very important to choose a dental professional that has the experience, knowledge, and expertise to determine the best treatment option for you. A dentist can evaluate your teeth, and customize your restoration treatment just for your individual needs.

Staff is very friendly. No wait time. They saw me and my daughter in a timely manner and Dr. Richards was so great! The work I had done was completely pain free... Didn't even feel the shot or the work that was being done. The end results were exactly what I needed! No pain, no complaints. Dr. Richards even called the same evening to see if I was feeling okay and to see if I had any questions... Best dental services I have ever had.Marisa B.
