3D Imaging and Convenience

First and foremost, modern dental technology has made the experience of a lost tooth far less inconvenient than it used to be. At our offices, we use a state-of-the-art 3D imaging and digital impression system – this allows us to get a direct impression of the tooth missing in your mouth, then replace it with a molded implant crown, all within the span of an hour in many cases.

This technology is a far sight from what patients even a decade or two ago would have dealt with. In those cases, most of these issues would have taken two appointments at minimum, with appointments taking longer and including several major hassle areas.

Implants and Other Options

There are a few options available for those who have experienced a lost tooth or multiple teeth:

Improving Self-Confidence

First and foremost, dental implants and the other options listed above do wonders for the functionality of the mouth. Missing teeth have a major impact on the chewing capabilities and other roles the mouth carries out, and replacing them improves their quality here.

In addition, however, these services go a long way for the self-confidence of many individuals. Particularly for visible teeth near the front of the mouth, gaps here leave many people ashamed of smiling or worried about what people will think when their teeth are exposed. With high-quality solutions that offer natural-looking and natural-feeling tooth implant options, however, these confidence issues are a thing of the past.
