When missing teeth have affected your smile either due to injury, infection, or decay, it significantly impacts both dental function and beauty. Thanks to the ever-advancing technologies and treatments available in the field of dentistry, patients suffering from tooth loss have more solutions now than ever.

Why Dental Implants?
A full, functioning jawbone needs stimulation from healthy tooth roots through chewing and biting to retain its shape and volume. This constant movement allows the jawbone to further support and secure healthy teeth. When teeth are missing, there is nothing to encourage proper stimulation, and the jawbone will begin to lose volume. As the bone weakens, gum-tissue recedes in a process called resorption. This also significantly affects facial structure as features begin to shift and sag, resulting in a prematurely aged appearance.
Dental implants differ from other tooth loss solutions because these posts are designed to mimic your tooth’s natural root, addressing a multitude of issues associated with the tooth loss. The base of a dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. Through a process called osseointegration, the jawbone grows around the implant, permanently fusing the two.
Because these replacements are designed to act like a tooth’s natural root, the jawbone once again receives stimulation. Just like when natural teeth are in their proper place, dental implants enhance jaw function and strength, returning normal use of the bite.
Replacing Missing Teeth from Root to Crown
Our team determines if patients are viable candidates for dental implant placement after a thorough examination of their current dental state as well as their medical history. When patients are considered ideal candidates for dental implants, Dr. Summers works closely with them to help make the entire process successful and effective.
Patients can have full confidence in their treatment, as dental implants provide a multitude of life-long benefits including:
Rebuild Jaw Strength & Structure - Due to their ability to mimic natural roots, dental implants promote a healthy environment for your smile. By providing the necessary stimulation to your jawbone, dental implants help support existing natural teeth and gums. No other tooth replacement option can offer this advantage.
Restore Natural Appearance – Dental Implants are the closest in feel and function to your natural teeth. After healing from your placement procedure, a custom-crafted, life-like restoration will be affixed to your implant. This allows for both discreet and natural-looking results.
Improve Quality of Life - Implant-supported restorations allow your smile to behave as a natural, healthy smile should. Once your implant treatment is complete, you can comfortably eat, drink, and smile with confidence. Implant-supported prosthetics eliminate the need for adhesives or clasps commonly used to hold traditional dentures and partials in place.
Convenience - Just as natural teeth, your implant-supported teeth require daily brushing and flossing. However, because they are permanent, they do not require removal for cleaning or eating. With strong at-home oral hygiene, your dental implants should be able to last a lifetime.
