Patients can have gaps in their smiles for many reasons. Some lose a tooth from trauma, such as a sports injury or car accident. Others lose a tooth—or many teeth—due to gum disease or dental decay. Some patients have hypodontia, which means they never formed the tooth in the first place.
No matter what the reason for the gap(s) in your smile, there are many reasons to replace your lost tooth (teeth). Dental implants offer the most natural tooth replacement option.
At Ocean View Dental Care, our dental team is highly qualified in placing dental implants. In fact, we are proud to have Board-Certified Periodontist Dr. Pichak Kelk on our team. Her education and training go far beyond dental school and includes extensive experience with the surgical placement of dental implants.
