Missing teeth can now be replaced easily and effectively by dental implants. Implants offer a permanent tooth replacement system that can replace from one tooth up to an entire arch. Implants are titanium fixtures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root.

Benefits of implants are:

  1. don't decay
  2. are over 97% successful
  3. are a natural tooth replacement
  4. conserve tooth structure of adjacent teeth
  5. may eliminate the need for a removable restoration to replace teeth
  6. prevent bone loss

There are over 20 million edentulous people in the U.S. Before implant technology, the patients had no alternative to tissue supported full dentures. Many of them fit very loosely, creating a greatly diminished ability to chew food (90%), and feel comfortable in their mouths. Now these patients can eat, talk, and smile comfortably and confidently. For patients missing a few, or only one tooth, implants can allow tooth replacement without having to remove natural tooth structure (as with a bridge), or necessitate a removable appliance (a partial).

Please talk to Dr. Peterson about the possibilities with dental implants.
