The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth
When missing teeth are left untreated, it can cause a domino effect of oral health concerns. Even when one tooth is lost, patients are at an increased risk of tooth shifting, bone loss, development of gingivitis or periodontitis and additional tooth loss. Missing teeth can also increase your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Replacing missing teeth not only improves the appearance of your smile, but it also helps promote a healthier and more functional smile. Bethesda Dental Implant Center replaces missing teeth with affordable dental implants and different types of restorative options.
Aside from the dental health concerns which missing teeth may cause, they can also have an effect on your appearance and self-confidence, your ability to eat your favorite foods, and how you pronounce certain words.

Are Dental Implants Right For Me?
Dental implants are designed to replace the natural tooth root; they are surgically implanted into the jaw bone and act as a base used to support a dental crown, denture, bridge or splint. In many ways, implants are one of the most successful and widely used tooth replacement options available to patients today. However, not everyone is an ideal candidate for the implant procedure.
Ideal candidates are in generally good health and have an adequate amount of healthy bone structure. Depending on your needs, bone grafting, sinus augmentation, or implant site development may be performed for patients who generally aren’t ideal candidates for dental implants.
Our team at Bethesda Dental Implant Center offers a complete range of implant dentistry services for patients with missing teeth. Our comprehensive, personalized approach to dentistry allows patients to get the care they need.
