Have you lost one or more teeth? Tooth loss is actually fairly common among adults because there are multiple contributing factors, including gum disease, genetics, trauma, and untreated cavities. No matter the cause of your tooth loss, it can be a challenging condition. You may feel embarrassed about the state or your teeth or afraid to smile.

However, Dr. Kevin Hogan can help. He provides numerous teeth replacement treatments, including dental implants. We help our patients restore health and beauty to their teeth and gums.

Why Teeth Replacement Matters

Even if you are only missing a single tooth in a less-visible area of your mouth, it is still extremely important to seek dental treatment. Leaving missing teeth untreated can lead to several worsening dental conditions, including:

  • Increase in bad bacteria
  • Gum disease
  • Plaque on remaining teeth
  • Loose gum pockets
  • Misaligned bite
  • Loss of bone tissue
  • Difficulty eating, smiling, and talking

How Dental Implants Work

Implants can replace a single missing tooth or multiple teeth. The dental implant process begins with one or more titanium posts inserted into your jawbone. Once the implant fuses to the jawbone, a permanent dental crown is attached. For most people, the implant procedure is fairly short with a quick recovery. If you are a good candidate for the treatment, there are several important benefits dental implants can offer, such as:

  • Natural appearance
  • Comfortable eating and speaking
  • Improved jaw alignment
  • Stimulation for healthy bone tissue growth
  • Better oral health
  • Reduced risk to remaining natural teeth
