When you are missing teeth, it is critical to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can be challenging, as well as uncomfortable. Missing teeth can also destabilize your bite. Dental implants are a great option for replacing teeth that are missing or are badly diseased. A dental implant at Richard W. Bates, DDS offers relief, support, and stability to your bite, and often, implants are the most natural and effective option available.
Dr. Bates and our team have helped many patients using implant dentistry at our Colonial Heights office restore their smiles to look more natural. Each implant is created to fit in perfectly with the look of the rest of your teeth.
Besides making your smile appear more natural, dental implants have other benefits. They include:
- Restoring your ability to properly chew food
- Preventing your teeth from shifting and moving
- Stabilizing your bite, helping you avoid pain or discomfort
If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth and feel like you are a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Bates and our team at Richard W. Bates, DDS encourage you to give us a call to schedule an appointment. See you soon!
