Dental implants boast a high success rate and can be the best option for patients with one or multiple missing teeth. Whether you have lost a tooth to tooth decay, after gum disease, or after an accident, Dr. Vivek Amin and Dr. Tamara Strouth may recommend tooth replacement with dental implants. We perform both dental implant placement and restoration services at our practice. All of our implant cases are guided implant surgeries to ensure optimal placement.
Many people do not realize that even a single missing tooth can damage their oral health over time. Missing teeth leave the jaw bone without stimulation so the bone starts to deteriorate almost immediately after tooth loss. Excessive bone loss can cause facial deformities and completely change the look of your smile. Many people with missing teeth find it difficult to chew food properly, speak clearly or enjoy their favorite foods. This is where permanent tooth replacement with dental implants can help.
I had [the bridges on my right side] replaced with individual implants. They have been fantastic because it’s so much easier maintenance, so much difference in the way you chew your food, so much difference in the way it feels. I have three other bridges that I want to get replaced because of the one that was replaced.
In addition to placing individual dental implants, our doctors perform the All-on-4® and Teeth-in-a-Day™ procedures. These procedures can be attractive alternatives to other tooth replacement procedures when the patient has limited bone tissue available. We have sedation dentistry options available to increase patient comfort during the dental implant procedure.
