When you’re missing one or more teeth, tooth replacement is not optional—it’s mandatory. Life with tooth loss can lead to more oral health problems, such as gum disease, malocclusion and even additional tooth loss. In addition, there are the consequences to your general health—malnutrition for one—and to your self-confidence and emotional well-being; no one is comfortable with the idea that people are noticing the gap is their smile. So, the only question is what tooth replacement option is best. Dental implants in Canton, GA, provide stability as well as an attractive smile. At Dentistry at Hickory Flat, Dr. Katherine Lee and Dr. Brian Lee are implant specialists who use this effective form of tooth replacement for one or missing teeth.
