The Need For Dental Implants • Large Numbers Still Suffer Tooth Loss
The current state of dental care technology is amazing. Today’s dental patients benefit from high-tech digital x-rays, intra-oral 3D scanning and CNC precision machining of dental restorations, laser periodontal treatments and pre-symptom cavity detection with laser fluorescence. Despite unprecedented advancements in dental care, millions of Americans still suffer tooth loss due to injury, gingivitis (gum disease), or decay.
Dental Implants are the Modern Alternative to Bridges/Dentures
For decades the only treatment options for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures. Today Dr. Lim can insert a titanium “tooth root” known as a dental implant into the jawbone. Once integrated with the jawbone the dental implant can be used to replace one tooth or multiple teeth for a full, healthful smile that looks natural and functions very much like natural teeth.
Dr. Lim Specializes in the Restoration/Replacement of TeethDr. Steve Lim is a Board Certified Prosthodontists. A prosthodontist is a dentist who Specializes in the aesthetic (cosmetic) restoration and replacement of teeth. Including the treatment, planning, and restoration of implants, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), and rehabilitation of occlusion (the relation between the upper and lower teeth when the jaw is closed, and their surfaces come in contact) with prostheses all fall under the field of prosthodontics.
Graduates of an accredited dental school are permitted to practice prosthodontics. Dr. Lim elected to receive additional post-graduate training at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and completed a three-year program in prosthodontic training followed by board certification.

Why should I replace a missing tooth?
"Resorption" (bone loss in the area of a missing tooth) is the inevitable complication of long-term tooth loss. As time passes, missing teeth can give rise to a mouth rearrangement, and it becomes increasingly more challenging and expensive to replace a missing tooth and at some point may become impossible. That's why it's important to replace a missing tooth sooner rather than later. Dental implants prevent resorption by integrating into the jaw bone, allowing normal chewing pressure to maintain the health of the gums and jaw bone.
Missing teeth can cause serious complications if left untreated.
