Replacing a Missing Tooth

Natural Tooth Root versus Dental Implant

Replacing a Missing Tooth

A natural tooth is anchored into the jawbone by its tooth root.  Tooth roots attach firmly to the jawbone and keep your teeth stable when chewing foods.
Traditionally, if you were missing a tooth or if one needed to be extracted, the healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth would be cut down and the whole thing replaced with a three-crown bridge.
Dental implants are the modern natural alternative. Instead of cutting down two perfectly healthy teeth, the practitioner inserts a dental post (dental implant) into the jawbone to replace your missing tooth root. This post becomes solidly fixed into your jaw (somewhat like a natural tooth root). Your general dentist then places a crown onto this artificial tooth root that looks, feels, and functions like your natural teeth.
Quite simply, dental implants are the most natural replacement for missing teeth.

Dental Implants make for better oral health.

Bone Loss

Avoiding Failures


Complications and Options

Bone loss is one of the main issues causing problems and failures with implant patients.  The Bicon system can be used with many patients that cannot use more traditional implant systems due to bone loss.
Bicon is a well-established alternate to more traditional implants, and has been around since 1985.  However, they have almost exclusively served patients in the East Coast.  Green Valley Dental Specialties offers this product and Dr. Jamison has been trained by Bicon on how to best use their product.
If you’re interested in learning more about Bicon, please visit their site.  You can do so by clicking here.  
To schedule a consultation to see if you’re a good candidate for the Bicon system, please call us at

Several Teeth

Replacing Several Missing Teeth

Implant Supported Dentures

Traditionally, several missing teeth would have been replaced with a removable partial or full denture.
Dentures have to be taken out and soaked at night. During the day, they can also look unnatural and rub painfully. Dentures and partials make it difficult or impossible to eat certain foods.
Dental implants can now be used to anchor partial and full dentures. This prevents the slipping, irritation, and pain associated with floating partials and dentures.

This alternative creates a much easier method of cleaning dentures and implants.
