Mak DDS has the expertise and the experience to boost your self-esteem with dental implants for missing teeth.

Denture wearers understand all too well the problems that come with removable teeth. Dentures slip, can be uncomfortable and can be embarrassing. However, dental implants for missing teeth eliminate the problems caused by dentures and may be a good fit for you and your missing teeth.

Esthetics aside there are other reasons to consider dental implants for missing teeth

  • Missing teeth create a space, which could lead to other teeth drifting
  • Bone loss
  • Tissue loss
  • Nutritional issues

Drifting-If you have lost a tooth, your other teeth will drift into place. Your teeth will want to fill the space that was left by the missing tooth.

Bone and Tissue Loss-When you lose a tooth there is nothing to exercise the bone or the gum tissue. This will lead to eventual bone loss. People who wear dentures will notice bone loss over time and will need to have a new set of dentures made to fit properly.

Lack of Nutrition-People who have missing teeth may not be getting the nutrition needed for a healthy body. Certain foods must be avoided if you have missing teeth or wear dentures.
