Missing teeth tend to have a domino effect on the mouth. One missing tooth can lead to others falling out as well as a sunken facial appearance. This is why Dr. Rogers uses dental implants in his practice. Dental implants look and function just as natural teeth would. They help maintain bone mass and stimulate the gums to prevent further tooth loss.
Many people prefer the look and function of dental implants to dentures or bridges. We surgically place each implant into the jawbone in order to replace the natural tooth root. After a few months, the implant forms a secure attachment to the bone, allowing it with withstand biting and chewing just like a healthy tooth would. After about 3-6 months when the implant has completely integrated with the bone, a post is attached to the implant. We then take a cosmetic dentistry approach to apply a permanent tooth replacement.
