Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants

Why is it Bad to Lose Teeth?

Teeth can be lost from accidents or trauma, but the most prevalent reason people lose a tooth is because of gum disease and/or decay. So, is it a terrible thing to lose a tooth? I mean, it's not life-threatening, right? No, you can't die from tooth loss, but losing even one tooth can cause a shifting of teeth which is not good. This can impact chewing and the body's ability to absorb nutrients. Other disagreeable things can result: your face will change shape, often having a sunken look. This will age your face and make you look older than you are. The way you talk can be affected. Because it's more difficult to chew with missing teeth, you may start favoring softer food choices with more carbohydrates, which can lead to weight gain. The great way to repair a missing tooth (or missing teeth) is with dental implants. An implant can replace from one tooth to several. They can be created to look so lifelike that even dentists have to look closely to tell the difference.

Implant Retained Dentures

Overdentures – Locking Your Dentures Securely in Place

We offer our denture patients another alternative – overdentures. With the addition of a few dental implants to support dentures, your teeth will be "locked" into place so they won't move around or slip. Yet they can easily snap off for ease of cleaning. Ask us if you are a candidate for overdentures!

See our Custom Dentures page for more information about dentures and implants!

Full Mouth Dental Rehabilitation

Rebuilding Your Smile with a Full-Mouth Rehabilitation

Oral health can have a bigger effect on a person's life than regular cleanings and the occasional filling can provide. Many patients who've had injury, illness, bite problems, and wear and tear can have chronic problems that they don't even realize originated in their mouth. Bruxism (tooth grinding), TMJ, periodontitis, crooked and misshapen teeth, and missing teeth can lead to headaches or migraines, toothaches, bad breath, and an unattractive smile. But you no longer have to live like that.
Dr. Agrawal will discuss your concerns, symptoms, and treatment goals. After taking digital X-rays, photos, and/or imprints of your mouth, he will present options for a treatment plan to address any issues and achieve a healthy, painless, beautiful smile. We can also discuss treatment through phases, and financial planning that will place your dream smile within your budget.
