A dental implant is an artificial root form of a tooth made from any inert material, (e.g. titanium) that is embedded in the bone over which crowns are then fabricated. Dental implant costs depend on the material for both the implant as well as the crown. Thus, implant dentistry is fast gaining popularity.

Why should I replace my missing tooth?
A tooth has many functions some being to chew, to speak, to keep the facial muscles and tissue in a proper position, to smile, and to keep the other teeth from shifting. Once a tooth is lost this whole balance is disrupted and it leads to various problems. Once a tooth is lost the neighboring teeth start to shift. This may take some time to notice for our eyes but it happens fairly rapidly. After a few years, the size of the opening has closed dramatically. What used to be a fantastic smile is a gapped hole smirk. Some just prefer not to smile big anymore because they are self-conscious of their looks. The cheeks or the lips can appear sunken in. You may speak differently and sound differently. What once was a stable bite is now changing. What once was a self-cleansing tooth arrangement is now a plaque trapping nightmare. Chewing can be more difficult and tooth decay becomes more prevalent. These are just some of the effects of losing a tooth.

Why do my gums bleed all the time?
This normally happens when there is an inflammation or infection of the supporting structures of the teeth, i.e. the surrounding gum tissue or supporting bone. It is caused by a sticky, colorless film that is constantly forming on your teeth. This film is called plaque. If this film is not cleaned off the teeth with proper brushing and flossing the bacteria in the plaque cause an inflammation of the gum tissue called gingivitis. The symptoms of gingivitis are red, swollen, tender, or bleeding gums. If you have any of these symptoms it would be wise to contact a dentist as soon as possible. If left untreated it progresses to periodontitis.
