Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Most people don’t realize how deeply tooth loss can impact your smile. Not only does it change how a smile looks, but it also leads to several health issues. Neighboring teeth can drift into the space, ruining your bite. Your speech and digestion can also be impacted.
Worst of all, without tooth roots, your jaw won’t get the chewing stimulation it needs. Over time, the bone begins to shrink in a process called resorption. The jaw gets thinner, teeth sink inward, and your facial features change, leading to premature aging.
What Makes Dental Implants Effective?
Dental implants are the only tooth replacements capable of replacing the entire tooth. They create a new tooth root out of biocompatible titanium, which fuses with the bone. This effect not only makes implants permanently stable and strong but also provides new stimulation and protects your youthful features.
Top 5 Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer a broad range of benefits, many of which are exclusive to these unique restorations. Here are five reasons you should consider dental implants to replace your missing teeth:
- Versatile – Unlike bridges or dentures, dental implants can replace anything from a single missing tooth to an entire dental arch.
- Reliable – Implants become part of your jaw, providing ultimate stability. You never have to worry about your new teeth slipping, and they function just as well as a real tooth, which means no diet restrictions.
- Permanent – A dental implant will always stay in place as long as the jaw is healthy. You won’t need to have an implant replaced, and replacing a worn crown, bridge, or denture is easy and painless.
- Convenient – Dental implants are easy to clean - just brush and floss as you normally do.
- Healthy – Implants protect your jawbone strength and facial features, and they provide improved chewing, speaking, and self-confidence.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
One of the questions patients ask us most often is whether implants are right for them. Thanks to the combination of Dr. Bandary’s prosthodontic expertise and the skill of our oral surgeon, we’ve helped countless patients receive successful dental implant treatment. If you’re missing one or more teeth, you’re likely an excellent candidate for dental implants.
The two most important factors to consider are jawbone density and overall oral health. Dental implants are a highly successful treatment, but they require a strong jawbone to stay in place. Since bone density deteriorates after tooth loss, the longer you wait after losing a tooth, the more difficult the implant placement will be. That’s why we recommend being evaluated for implants soon after tooth loss or extraction. If you have waited, you may still qualify for implant-supported restorations. During your consultation, we will evaluate your oral health and discuss solutions to your qualifying factors.
It’s also important that your mouth is healthy overall. Gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss, and can also put dental implants at risk. In the later stages, gum disease actually causes the gums and jawbone to shrink, so teeth and implants both lose support. If you have signs of gum disease, we’ll work to restore your gum health before we replace your teeth.
What is All-on-4 Implant Placement?
Typically a full dental arch will need 6-8 dental implants in each jaw to provide enough support for daily chewing. However, with careful and precise placement, it’s possible to support an entire arch on only four dental implants. This process is known as All-on-4.
All-on-4 makes your dental implant treatment an even more positive experience. Since you use fewer implant posts, the procedure takes less time, and your mouth can heal more quickly after treatment.
Since the placement of implants in this procedure will determine its success, having an experienced professional dental team who can ensure that your treatment goes smoothly is vital. Dr. Bandary and the oral surgeon will work closely with you to help you understand whether you’d be a good candidate for this option, and to ensure that the plan is carefully crafted so that you receive the best possible results.
