Losing one or more of your teeth creates a gap in your smile, affects your ability to chew properly, and can alter your diet and nutrition. While these are all serious issues, did you know that tooth loss also leads to bone loss?

Dental Implant Therapy

When a tooth is lost, the jawbone beneath it begins to shrink (or atrophy) and becomes brittle from lack of exercise. Not only does losing a tooth affect your smile, it also changes the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.



Dental implants can be placed in most adults. Certain uncontrolled medical conditions may decrease implant treatment effectiveness, so first discuss your full medical history with Dr. Ayan. Patient results may vary. Only a trained clinician can determine the best treatment. Dr. Ayan will explain the benefits and risks to see if dental implants are right for you. The value of dental implants far exceeds conventional treatment options. Dental implants are the new standard of care for tooth replacement. They are secured into the bone to provide long term support for crowns and dentures.
