Implants have become a wonderful option to replace teeth. Even when the missing tooth is not easily seen, a missing tooth can allow other teeth to shift, creating an unbalanced bite and areas that are difficult to keep clean. Of course, when it's a front tooth, nobody wants to go without!
In addition to tooth replacement, implants may be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. For patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so that you have a more natural looking smile that does not need to be taken out!

“I’ve been wearing a removable plastic partial and want something permanent to replace my missing front tooth.”
Tom's implant supported replacement tooth
“I had to have this tooth extracted and want it replaced without putting a crown on the tooth in front of it.” An implant supported crown with a custom gold post for strength was the best choice.
