Raising a family involves a lot of sacrifices: you have to give up your time, stretch your patience, practice compassion, and in many cases you have to empty your bank account too. By the time it’s over, however, you’ve raised a person from childhood into their independent adult life – it’s a great reward.
If you’re finding that you finally have time and money to devote to yourself you’re probably wondering what you can do to make up for lost time.

Missing Teeth: Restoring Them With Style And Security
Lost teeth are common – around 60 percent of adults have lost at least one. When tooth loss happens you shouldn’t take chances with a damaged smile: the longer you wait the worse the health consequences become.
Over time a single lost tooth can start a domino effect of destruction, leading to more and more lost teeth until you’re living without any at all. In the past the only common way to restore lost teeth was with a bridge, but dental technology has come a long way since then. In fact, we don’t even recommend bridges for lost teeth anymore! The best way to replace a missing tooth is a dental implant.
Implants: Different By Design
A dental implant is the closest we can come to actually regrowing a lost tooth. That technology may be a ways off, but you’ll hardly be able to tell an implant isn’t the real deal once it’s placed, healed, and restored.
Implants are small tooth root sized screws that are made from titanium. Titanium has the unique ability to form permanent bonds with bone, and once your implant is placed in your jaw it will heal to a strength surpassed only by a natural tooth.
Implants are designed to provide all the stability and strength of a natural tooth with a permanent, life-long solution you can’t get with other treatments. Not only that, but dental implants completely stop the tooth loss domino effect. You lose more and more teeth because of jaw bone loss, and titanium is able to stop that by bonding to the bone and strengthening it.
We can use implants to restore a single tooth, create bridges to support several teeth, give support to dentures, and even completely replace your removable dentures with permanently anchored teeth. The treatment that’s right for you is available at our Edgewood office!
What Does A Great Smile Mean To You?
Maybe you’ve let an old crown go too long, or have a bridge that’s getting too old to look good and function well. Perhaps you’ve simply lost a tooth and want to get rid of that gap – all of these things and more are possible with implants.
A great smile isn’t just about looking good – it’s about being able to enjoy your favorite foods without trouble, social events without embarrassment, and life without the hassles and difficulties of tooth loss. We want to help you get that smile, not only so you feel more confident, but so you live a better, more fulfilled life!
