Dental Implants

A missing tooth not only affects the appearance your smile, but it can also make you feel embarrassed and self-conscious.

But a missing tooth is much more than a cosmetic problem. If we don't replace a missing tooth, you will develop more severe dental conditions. The teeth behind the missing space will gradually tilt forward, moving the rest of your teeth out of alignment.

Also, each tooth has an important job to do. When a tooth is missing, surrounding teeth have to work harder. This extra work leads to stress on healthy teeth, which in turn leads to early wear or fracture.

If you have a missing tooth, we can recommend a dental bridge or a dental implant. A bridge includes an artificial tooth and crowns on either side that attach to your natural teeth. This is an excellent option because it works well for many people.

However, if you would like a permanent solution, we can recommend a dental implant. The implant is placed in your jaw, allowed to heal, then finished with a dental crown. A dental implant acts as much like a natural tooth as possible so you can eat your favorite foods and smile with confidence.

If you have a missing tooth, please don't put off treatment. Call our Candia, NH dental office, and we'll work together to find the solution that fits all your needs.
