Can I Replace Missing Teeth With Dental Implants?
Yes, you can replace one or more teeth with dental implants. Dental implants are designed to replicate the natural tooth root, creating a stable foundation used to support a dental crown, denture, or dental bridge. Described as one of the most successful tooth replacement options, a dental implant offers patients a stable, long-lasting, and natural looking solution for missing teeth.
Dr. Justin Deckard of DC Precision Dentistry offers a full range of dental implant services for patients in need. Using CBCT technology, Dr. Deckard can perform all phases of the implant process in our Washington, DC, dentist office. Patients can receive the implant care they need under one roof, allowing for a more personalized, precise treatment.

Why is it important to replace missing teeth?
Missing teeth are usually an indication of poor oral or overall health. Addressing missing teeth as soon as possible is in the best interest of all patients. When a tooth is lost, the remaining teeth begin to shift in an attempt to fill the space. Not only can shifting teeth result in crooked teeth, but it can also make brushing and flossing more difficult. In addition, missing teeth can also lead to bone density loss and an increased risk of infection and periodontal disease.
