Solve the Problem of Multiple Missing Teeth

It is not uncommon to see adults with single or multiple missing teeth. Whether the teeth were lost through trauma, progressive gum disease, or another condition, the key is to fix the problem. At our dental practice, we use state-of-the-art technology, such as dental implants, to ensure that missing teeth are a worry of the past for our patients.

Why We Recommend Replacing Missing Teeth

For many people, missing teeth seem natural. Their parents and grandparents had missing teeth, and now they do. However, missing teeth can lead to some serious issues:

Tooth Drifting

The teeth surrounding the missing teeth are more likely to drift and shift out of place, which can cause misalignment, decreased functionality, and gum irritation.

Bone Loss

When a missing tooth is not replaced, the bone begins to be reabsorbed into the body. This leads to bone loss, which can gets worse over time.

Speaking and Eating Problems

Depending on the location of the missing teeth, it can be tough to talk clearly or be able to eat what you want.

Unnatural Gum Lines

As the bone recedes at the site of a missing tooth, the gum line also recedes. This can give your mouth and cheeks a sunken-in, aged look.

Social Embarrassment

Having several missing teeth can lead to discomfort in social situations, leading to lowered confidence.

The best way to avoid these issues is to talk to Dr. Kevin Hogan. We can provide you with a thorough examination and customized treatment plan to get you back to where you want to be.

Dentures Inconvenient? Try a Permanent Solution!

If you currently wear dentures, you know that they can feel uncomfortable, look unnatural, and be an inconvenience. Our team offers permanent dental implants, a solution that eliminates the need for traditional dentures. Still want a denture prosthetic? For patients who are missing an entire arch of teeth, we can provide implant-supported dentures. Talk to us today about setting up a consultation, and read through our patient testimonials.

Treatment Options to Replace Missing Teeth

Dr. Hogan specializes in the placement of several types of dental implants for patients with one missing tooth, or several missing teeth:

Dental Implants

Single dental implants mimic the natural look and function of your regular teeth. They are excellent options if you have multiple missing teeth in separate locations of your mouth, rather than in a row.

Full Mouth Dental Implants

These procedures help you achieve the appearance you want without the need for individual dental implants. During the treatment, Dr. Hogan will implant four or six titanium posts into your jawbone that will secure your customized, natural-looking prosthetic.
