You Are Not Alone in Tooth Loss
Tooth loss in America is extremely common. Over 35 million Americans have lost all their teeth and around 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth! While you are not alone in tooth loss, it is still of utmost importance to replace any of your missing teeth. Without replacement, you may experience bone loss in your jaw, cosmetic changes in your facial structure, shifting teeth or a collapsed bite. Dr. Scott Condie most commonly recommends dental implants for a permanent and healthy solution to missing teeth.
Dental Implants Improve Appearance and Self-Confidence
Dr. Condie offers a variety of dental implant options to fit your needs, including single, multiple and full-arch replacement.

You Have Nothing to Fear with Dental Implants
With the use of advanced CT scans and 3D implant placement guides, Dr. Condie is able to place implants with precision to avoid any nerves or anatomical details. Patients receive a dose of anesthesia applied to the implant site to make the surgery nearly painless. A titanium implant is placed into the jaw bone and given time to heal and integrate with the surrounding bone. After a brief healing period, a crown is placed to look identical to a natural tooth.
