The Healthiest Solution for Missing Teeth


Missing teeth can cause many oral health problems including shifting of teeth, bite changes and loss of bone in your jaw. Even if you are missing a tooth in the back of your mouth, you should consider replacing it as soon as possible to prevent additional complications. Dr. Waring has been trained in the placement of both conventional and small diameter implants, giving you the option to replace teeth in almost any area of your mouth.

Dental implants are durable,

and can last a lifetime when taken care of properly.

Over time, teeth can shift into areas where teeth are missing. Biting forces on the remaining teeth are increased and additional bone loss can take place. Dental implants mimic a natural tooth and prevent further damage from taking place.

Dental implants look and feel natural, and are an excellent solution to missing teeth. Whether it’s a single tooth or multiple teeth that need to be replaced, dental implants are an investment in your total oral health. Dr. Waring can discuss your options for tooth replacement and determine if dental implants are right for you!

Regular Implants

Dental implants are the closest replacement option to your natural teeth because the implant acts as a tooth root to prevent shifting of teeth and additional loss of bone. After the implant is placed and has time to heal, we will create a custom crown to fit over the implant. The implant-supported crown will look natural and you will be able to bite, chew and speak normally.

Mini-Implants

Dr. Waring has specialized training in mini-implants. They are similar to traditional dental implants but are smaller and more appropriate for front teeth, narrow areas, premolars and other areas where regular dental implants are too large. Mini-implants may be used to secure dentures as well. Ask Dr. Waring if you are a candidate for these innovative tooth replacements.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Do you currently wear dentures? You may consider using implants to hold your dentures in place, eliminating the need for adhesives and avoiding the embarrassment of a loose denture. Sometimes your existing denture can be modified to work with dental implants. Ask us if implant-retained dentures are right for you.
