Dental implants are the most versatile tooth replacement options, and are effective in replacing any number of missing teeth from one tooth to an entire row. This is due in large part to the innovative design that replaces the entire dental structure both the roots and biting surfaces of teeth. This not only provides optimal structural support for replacement prosthetics, but promotes oral health by stimulating jawbone density and the retention of gum tissue volume. For many patients, dental implants are the clearly superior tooth replacement solution, but like any surgical procedure, there are patients who will not be ideal candidates. Before selecting dental implant tooth replacement, it’s essential that patients weigh their options, and make the choice that fits their needs.

- It’s a New Year! The New Year is a time for new starts, and this year you can make a resolution to start flossing every day. The benefits are greater than you may think!
- Avoid plaque build up! When you eat, food can get stuck between your teeth. When this is left unchecked, it can cause serious plaque build-up which can lead to bad breath, cavities, and gum disease. Plaque builds up naturally after you eat, and this sticky substance is notorious for causing the mentioned problems and more. Even if you brush regularly and your teeth look okay, neglecting to floss can only do harm. Cavities can form in hard to reach places such as between teeth, making them go unnoticed until you’re in serious pain and in desperate need of a dental visit.
