Restore Your Smile or Lose It

Missing Teeth Cause Complications

Are you missing teeth? The fact that you’re here probably means you’re not smiling or laughing as much as you used to. Not enjoying all your favorite foods. Not feeling good about yourself or the way you look. Missing teeth do more than limit your daily activities and compromise your smile aesthetics. Without natural tooth roots, your jaw can begin to decay—leading to further tooth loss and a sunken facial appearance. You see, teeth help maintain your jawbone health through the stimulation of healthy bone growth. If you’re looking for a replacement for missing teeth in Issaquah, WA, you need dental implants.
