When a tooth is removed, a lot of things can happen. The bone in that area shrinks over time. Also, teeth around that missing tooth will shift and tilt, possibly changing the way your teeth come together. Let me quickly define the pieces and parts that make up a dental implant:

Dear friends,
 
As most of you know I recently sold my practice and am retiring from Cornelius Dentistry this month.  I have mixed emotions as I say goodbye to you, but look forward to the adventures that lie ahead.  I am also excited to introduce Dr. Meghan Stenvall who will be taking over as your dentist.
