An affordable and effective tooth replacement solution
Whether you have lost teeth after gum disease or due to an accident, you need to know about the long-term effects of having missing teeth. Even though you may have spaces or gaps in the back of the mouth, the lack of a tooth root can cause jaw bone loss around the area where the tooth is missing. Over time, this leads to facial deformities, jaw misalignment and other oral health problems. Turn to Dr. James Woodyard for options to replace missing teeth in Evansville, IN.

Affordable Tooth Replacement Treatment Option
Implant dentures are an affordable option for patients who want to replace missing teeth in Evansville, IN. Instead of relying on dentures that can slip or move around the mouth, we can place a set of dental implants to secure the dentures in place. Many patients with traditional dentures move on to implant dentures for a better fit and more stability. These are an affordable tooth replacement option for those missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw.
Tooth Replacement Process
Dr. Woodyard uses advanced technologies to ensure optimal placement of dental implants. The first procedure involves placing the implants in the jawbone. We will need to wait three to six months for the implants to integrate with the jaw bone before we perform a second surgery to expose the top of the implants for the denture attachment phase. In some cases, the entire procedure is performed in one step so you receive a new set of teeth on your visit.
