Are You Tired of Missing Teeth?
We meet people every day who are sick and tired of dealing with missing or broken teeth. Not only are they tired of not being able to chew, but they’re tired of the discomfort. Above all, they’re tired of being embarrassed of their teeth.
Missing teeth affect how we look and feel. In addition, they hurt our overall health in dramatic ways.

Why are Lost Teeth a Problem?
We Need Healthy Teeth to Eat Healthy Food!
Having fewer teeth makes it hard to bite and chew. When we are missing teeth, we have to shift our food to chew where we have teeth. This not only stresses our remaining teeth, but it also makes it harder to eat chewy and crunchy foods.
What’s Your Favorite Food? Implants Can Chew It! Many people who ask us for dental implants are sick and tired of not being able to eat what they want. No one likes chewing carefully all the time. And everyone hates eating soft foods all the time. Implant teeth are strong enough to bite into anything you’re craving.
Missing Teeth Means Missing Jaw Bone
Most people are happy to get a broken or infected tooth pulled. Of course, they naturally assume that solves the problem. To be sure, removing a bad tooth does remove the infection. However, it doesn’t restore function. Extractions only solve half the problem
Bone loss is the dark secret problem of tooth loss
When we think about what teeth do, we usually think about chewing and smiling. However, one of teeth’s most important jobs is something invisible. Our teeth hang onto bone. They maintain healthy bone levels in our jaws. When we lose teeth, we also lose bone. In fact, this bone loss progresses continually after we lose a tooth. Stoping bone loss requires replacing the missing tooth root with an implant.
We Age Faster When We've Lost our Teeth
We know that tooth loss leads to bone loss. However, few people realize how bone loss affects the face.
Jaw Bones Do More Than Just Hold Teeth
Healthy jaw bones form a thick, protective shield around the lower part of the face and head. In fact, these bones help protect the parts of our bodies that breath, swallow, see and think. When jaw bones get thin and fragile, it puts our throats, eyes and even our brain at risk.
Unhealthy Jaw Bones Cause “Face Sag”
Not only does bone loss weaken our faces, but it also eventually causes the lower face to collapse. In fact, bone loss transforms faces giving them the sunken-in “old person” appearance. As the face loses bone support, skin sags and wrinkles. Of course, this process doesn’t happen overnight. Instead, it continually progresses from the moment a tooth is lost. Not surprisingly, the more teeth we lose, the worse the sag gets.
