Patients with missing teeth may find it difficult to speak or chew and often feel embarrassed to share their smile. Missing teeth compromise the function and appearance of the entire chewing system and should therefore be replaced as soon as possible.
Missing teeth jeopardize the stability and function of the smile. Even one missing tooth leaves a gap in the jaw bone. Without the tooth’s root system, the jaw bone is compromised and will typically begin to break down and recede. Teeth may shift and become crooked and leave the gums susceptible to infection or recession.
Missing teeth increase the risk of:
- Additional tooth loss
- Gum disease
- Gum recession
- Bone loss
- Facial sagging
- Shifting or loosening of teeth
Missing teeth often make it difficult to eat a varied and healthy diet. Patients with missing teeth may suffer from poor nutrition and a decrease in overall wellness.
Restore Your Smile, Replace Missing Teeth
Replacing missing teeth can not only boost self-esteem, but it can also help prevent secondary conditions from developing. Dr. Caleb Robinson has advanced training in the placement of dental implants for the restoration of missing teeth. A Dawson Academy trained dentist, Dr. Robinson practices comprehensive dentistry. He looks at all aspects of oral and systemic health to create a treatment plan that improves a patient’s quality of life.
Dr. Robinson offers several options for replacing missing teeth, including dental implants, dental bridges and dentures. Dental implants are the most natural and practical option for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth, or multiple dental implants can be placed to secure a denture or dental bridge.
Dental implants mimic the natural performance of human teeth. Dental implants look, function, and feel like real teeth. Dental implants are the only missing tooth restoration that replaces the missing tooth root, helping to stabilize the jaw bone tissue. Dr. Robinson surgically places implants into healthy jaw tissue. Dental implants are made of biocompatible material which fuses with the bone and creates a stable anchor for the final dental restoration.
Combining state of the art dental technology and digital imaging, Dr. Robinson handles all phases of the implant process in-house. Our dental care team oversees each stage of treatment for a convenient and predictable implant process. We strive to provide our patients with replacement options that promote long-term oral health, bite stability and improve their overall appearance and confidence.
