Keep Your Health Intact: Replace a Missing Tooth
Experts agree that getting your tooth replaced after it comes out or has been extracted is essential if you want to avoid the peripheral risks associated with losing teeth. Dental implants most closely resemble the natural tooth structure, therefore are highly recommended by both dentists and patients alike.
At Lake Park Dental, Dr. Jockin performs all tooth replacement services at our comfortable, conveniently-located office. In the past five years, she has placed more than 2,000 implants to improve the look, health and function for patients.
Your personal solution to replace missing teeth will be determined after a thorough consultation and examination. Our ultimate goal is for you to have a gentle, safe experience… and get the new tooth or teeth that you need to function and stay healthier.
Heal Faster After Missing Tooth Replacement
Dr. Jockin provides Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF) created from a patient’s own body to speed up the healing after any kind of dental surgery involving tooth replacement, such as dental implant treatment. This aids in reducing the time it takes for your mouth to adjust to the permanent replacement tooth.
