Missing teeth can cause discomfort and make you feel embarrassed. Left untreated, it can lead to other serious oral health issues.

So what makes dental implants with Dr. Christopher Laing a great treatment option?
Dental Implants Can Improve Your Oral Health
When properly placed and cared for, dental implants can last 25 years or more and provide lifelong benefits for your smile.
Improved Oral Health
After tooth loss, the jawbone can start to shrink, causing other health problems. Dental implants are the only treatment for missing teeth that also prevents bone atrophy in the jaw.
