Replacing a Missing Tooth

Replacing a missing tooth can raise a number of important questions about which option will be right for you. Dentures, partials, a fixed dental bridge, or a dental implant may be among your options. If you are considering a tooth implant in Amherst, we can help complete your smile and allow you to enjoy the many health benefits that dental implants provide.

Bone Retention

When you lose a tooth, you can lose the bone that holds that tooth in place because the relationship between the root of your tooth and the bone that holds it in place is disrupted. This can, unfortunately, lead to more tooth loss – a chain reaction that is common for many patients.

A dental implant replaces your missing tooth and actually integrates with your bone, preserving that valuable relationship.


Dental implants are convenient. They integrate fully with your jawbone and you can care for them much like you would care for a natural tooth. By brushing, flossing, and having regular dental exams and cleanings.

By following these steps you can prolong the life of your dental implant.

Implant-Retained Dentistry

If you have multiple missing teeth and want to combine the health benefits of dental implants with the affordability of dentures, we can use a few dental implants to lock your denture in place. Dental implants will keep your denture from moving while you eat and laugh. This can add confidence in all you do.

Beauty and a Natural Look at Your Amherst Dental Office 

Your dental implant will look very similar to your natural teeth and most people will never notice you have a dental implant. This is especially great for patients with active professional and social lives because dental implants are the best long-term solution to missing teeth.
