Advantages of Dental Implants over Dental Bridges

- Dental implants feel and function more like natural teeth
The Health Effects of a Missing Tooth
About 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth.* Missing teeth impact your oral health as well as your overall health. When even one tooth is missing, this allows your teeth to shift, changing your bite and starting a slippery slope of oral health complications. Gaps in your bite also cause your teeth to wear unevenly, which can cause further tooth loss.
