Replace Missing Teeth With Dental Implants - Talk To Dr. Marx About The Possibilities

"Well, you know Doc, it's just a back tooth. No one will see it so I'll just get rid of it.  It's not going to make a difference."  Unfortunately we hear this type of comment at Comprehensive Dental Care more often than you would think.

The plain truth is that it will make a difference.  At Comprehensive Dental Care we know the loss of just a single tooth can set a course that can destroy an entire mouth.  "Well, if that's true, tell me more. I sure don't want to lose the front ones that I smile with."

Dr. Marx often answers with an explanation that teeth will drift and tip into a space that is created by missing teeth.  Just like two gears of a car that are not properly aligned, pretty soon you've got a whole lot of problems.

"Well, I don't like that. What can I do?"  If it sounds like I've heard this conversation a few times, you're right.  If I'm going to keep a patient happy, I need to provide options at this point.

One of the options we often discus at Comprehensive Dental Care would be a dental implant. This is the replacement of a tooth with a false root that is surgically placed.  Dr. Marx then carefully constructs a dental crown to replace the missing tooth, to prevent teeth from shifting and thereby causing further tooth loss.
