Some of the top benefits of dental implants include:

Many adults end up losing at least one tooth to periodontal disease or tooth decay over their lifetime. If you have a broken tooth that starts to decay, you may need a high quality tooth replacement like an implant to preserve your smile. Dr. Vance offers single implants, implant bridges, and implant supported dentures to replace missing or broken teeth.
You can replace a single missing or broken tooth with a dental implant. The dental implant is designed to function just like a real tooth and does not require additional maintenance beyond normal daily cleaning and regular professional maintenance.
If you have more than one broken tooth or several missing teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants that are individually placed into the areas where teeth are missing. Dr. Vance may need to perform a tooth extraction to get rid of a broken tooth before a tooth replacement procedure. He may also recommend an implant bridge, where crown units span the space where your teeth are missing and are anchored by opposing implants. If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, dentures that are supported by dental implants are ideal for an extremely secure fit.
If you have missing teeth in Springfield, MO, schedule your appointment with Dr. Vance today. We can discuss the most effective tooth replacement options to suit your needs.
