What is the best way to replace my missing teeth?

Missing teeth compromise the function and health of your entire chewing system. Patients with missing teeth are often embarrassed to share their smiles and feel self-conscious in social settings. Replacing your missing teeth can help to improve not only your self-confidence, it can protect your body from a full range of secondary health issues associated with tooth loss.

Dr. Gabriel Overholtzer has advanced training in the placement of dental implants for the restoration of missing teeth. Dr. Overholtzer uses state of the art digital imaging, CT scanning and digitally guided implant placement technology providing patients with the most successful implant procedures possible. We do all of our dental implants in-house and oversee each phase of treatment for a convenient and predictable implant process.


Missing teeth leave a hole in the structure of the bite. Without the root system, the body begins to break down the jaw bone tissue. Dental implants are designed to replace the missing root system supporting the alignment and proper function of the bite. Dental implants are the most natural and supportive option for replacing any number of missing teeth.

It is essential to replace your missing teeth in order to prevent further deterioration of your oral health. Missing teeth can trigger a whole range of secondary health complications. Replacing your missing teeth can protect your smile and your entire chewing system from future damage.
Missing teeth increase the risk of:

  • Additional tooth loss
  • Gum disease
  • Gum recession
  • Bone loss
  • Facial sagging
  • Shifting or loosening of teeth

Patients with missing teeth are also more prone to poor nutrition, diabetes, and obesity. Replacing your missing teeth can help patients enjoy a more varied, healthy diet improving their overall all wellness.
