The power of a smile is enormous. "When you are smiling," Charlie Chaplin wrote, "the whole world smiles with you." A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. . . Anonymous

DENTAL IMPLANTS FOR TOOTH REPLACEMENT

Teeth can be lost for a number of reasons, including cavities, periodontal disease or trauma. Did you know that by age 17, more than 7.3 percent of U.S. children have lost one permanent tooth; and by age 50, Americans have lost an average of 12 teeth?

If you are missing one tooth in a given area of your mouth, your dentist may recommend that you consider one dental implant to replace the root of the missing tooth and an implant crown to rebuild your tooth min a beautiful and natural looking manner. Compared to other treatment options to replace missing teeth, such as bridges and removable partials, an implant with an implant crown offers a long-lasting solution for a missing tooth and requires fewer follow-up office visits.

Did you know that oral health is a major factor of good general health? Replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant and an implant crown should allow you to live your life as if you had never suffered from a missing tooth.

When your treatment is complete, you should be able to chew, speak and socialize without experiencing the negative emotions that having a missing tooth can sometimes cause.

Also, a dental implant and implant crown will help minimize the amount of bone that will be lost in the area of the missing tooth. Preserving oral bone may help maintain your remaining natural teeth and natural facial contours. Replacing your missing tooth may reduce the risk of having poorer nutritional habits often found in patients who do not replace missing teeth
