Dental Implants

Tooth Or Gum is a regional leader in dental implant treatment options.

Your teeth affect everything from your smile and confidence, to your ability to eat, speak and participate in the activities you enjoy.  There is no better option to restore missing teeth than dental implants.

Tooth implants are the next best thing to having your natural teeth restored.  Instead of being a removable device inside the mouth, like dentures, implants are permanently anchored into the jaw itself. Our affordable, dental implants can accommodate a single missing tooth or several missing teeth.

Missing teeth can be embarrassing, causing people to hide their smile and lose their self-esteem.

At Tooth or Gum we offer tooth replacement options for single and multiple missing teeth so that our patients can regain their self-confidence and improve their health.  A dental implant replaces both the lost natural tooth and its root.

Replacing a Single Tooth: If you are missing a single tooth, one implant and crown can replace it.

Replacing Several Teeth:  If you are missing several teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them

Replacing All of Your Teeth:  If you are missing all of your teeth, an implant-supported full bridge or full denture can replace them.  This is known as All On Four.

Why Dental Implants

Shifting and drifting of the teeth

Alteration in the bite as a result of shifting teeth

Additional stress on the remaining teeth

Benefits of Dental Implants

Replace loose-fitting dentures

Distribute bite forces evenly throughout the mouth

Function and feel like natural teeth

Improve speaking ability when bulky dentures are eliminated

Improve facial appearance by preventing bone loss

Dentures

  • Difficult to wear and may interfere with eating and speaking.
  • Denture maintenance costs hundreds to thousands of dollars over their lifetime.
  • One appliance only lasts 5-7 years on average.
  • Dentures put stress on the teeth supporting them and accelerate the bone loss associated with missing teeth.
  • Those who wear partial dentures have an 80% chance of breaking their appliance or losing another tooth within 5 years.

Our caring dentists believe all patients should have access to a healthy smile at an affordable price.
