Dental implants offer a long-term solution for missing teeth. They can restore strength, beauty and function to your smile because they are permanent.
Because they are secured in your jawbone and accepted as a natural tooth root, dental implants can also prevent bone shrinkage, a common side effect of tooth loss that is not preventable with other forms of tooth replacement.

Restoring the Health and Beauty of Your Smile
When you restore a missing tooth with a dental implant, there are benefits to your health, oral function and smile aesthetics. In these ways, dental implants restore:
- Ability to chew and bite
- Ability to enunciate words correctly and articulately
- Confidence when smiling, laughing and speaking
- Feelings of attractiveness, self-esteem and positive self-image
If these types of situations apply to you, then dental implants may be a great option. Restoring all of the aspects of a healthy, functional smile has emotional, mental and practical benefits for you in the long-term.
Why Restore a Missing Tooth?
Missing teeth invite a host of problems, including:
- Change in bite tension
- Uneven tooth wear
- Potential for tooth collapse
- Limitation of food choices
Every tooth in your mouth performs a specific function. When you are missing one or more teeth, the function of that tooth is shifted to adjacent teeth. This, in turn, can lead to serious problems including TMJ/TMD, gum disease, and additional tooth loss. Dental implants are a solution for missing teeth and can help prevent these and other problems from occurring. Additionally, they can allow for more conservative dental treatment.
Restoring Your Dental Health with Your Treatment of Choice
Dental implants are just one of the options for restoring a missing tooth. Dr. Konig is extensively experienced in reconstructing the bite and rejuvenating oral health using various dental prostheses. He has the skill and knowledge to determine whether you can choose from dental implants, dental bridges and dentures to replace one or more missing teeth.
As you can see from the outcomes above, dental implants restore a great many things. The proper balance and position of your bite is essential to your ability to use your teeth, and to feel comfortable and free of bite-related pain. But in addition to these more functional benefits, dental implants restore aspects of your emotional self-esteem by reinvigorating the appearance of your smile. You should never feel like you have to stifle a smile or laughter because of missing teeth, and Dr. Konig wants to help you enjoy your smile once again.
