What are the signs of gum disease?

Should I get dental implants?

Missing teeth can cause embarrassment and oral health problems. Patients with missing teeth are at a higher risk for gum disease and tooth loss as well. Dental implants succeed because they mimic real tooth roots. Your jawbone fuses around the fixtures and keeps your jaw strong. They have a more than 96% success rate! Implants can be used to place single tooth restorations or implant-retained dentures, depending on the patient’s needs At Long Family Dental, we used the latest advances in dental technologies to place and restore your dental implants seamlessly.
