How are you going to replace your missing back tooth? The space may look terrible when you smile or laugh, and it certainly feels weird to your tongue. More importantly, a missing tooth is detrimental to your chewing and lets neighboring teeth collapse into the space. For nearly 19 years, Dr. Geisler has been restoring dental implants. As of the Fall of 2021, Dr. Geisler will be placing dental implants (the surgical procedure) to replace missing back teeth and restoring them. In the past at Life Smiles, referrals were given to oral surgeons and periodontists for all placements. Implants are highly successful and have been heavily researched for more than fifty years. On a practical basis, they look and feel like your natural teeth. Are you interested in learning if you are a candidate for an implant?
