Missing teeth do more than cause embarrassing gaps in your smile. They can also affect your ability to speak, enjoy the foods you love, and gradually alter your bite. Fortunately, modern dentistry offers several solutions for replacing missing teeth and rebuilding a complete and beautiful smile. At the office of Lumos Dental, we offer skilled and experienced care to help patients once again smile with confidence and ease.
Today, dental implants represent the most advanced solution for the replacement of missing teeth. While conventional fixed bridges and dentures remain effective and satisfying ways to replace missing teeth, dental implants come the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of a natural smile.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants offer the most versatile option in care. Whether a single tooth is missing, multiple ones need replacement, or all the teeth have been lost, dental implants can be used to reestablish an attractive, complete, and functional smile.
Best of all, implants behave in much the same way as the roots of your natural teeth. Because they are entirely self-supporting, they don’t require the involvement of any adjacent teeth as conventional bridges or dentures do.
In addition to offering unparalleled support for replacement crowns, bridges, or implant-retained dentures, dental implants also provide ongoing stimulation to the surrounding jawbone, thereby preventing the tissue shrinkage and facial sagging associated with missing teeth.
