Find out if this tooth replacement option is the right approach to treating your tooth loss.
Are you currently contemplating whether your smile could benefit from implants? Our downtown Atlanta, GA, dentist Dr. Thomas Kauffman is here to tell you more about this amazing restoration that could provide you with a lot more smile benefits than you may even realize.
The Next Best Option
While in a perfect world you would keep all of your natural teeth, if tooth loss happens to you then the next step is to choose a restoration that will not just resemble a real tooth but also function as close to a real tooth as possible. This is where dental implants come in.
No other tooth replacement comes as close to the real thing as implants can because they actually take the place of your missing tooth roots to provide you with a permanent and durable foundation.
Reliability and Longevity
Everyone wants a tooth replacement that they can trust to last a long time. Since implants are made titanium, which naturally bonds with the jawbone and oral tissue, you’ll have a tooth replacement that literally becomes part of your mouth. With the proper oral care, your implant could last several decades or even the rest of your life. No other tooth replacement can boast this same lifespan.
Preserve Your Bone Health
Tooth loss alone can feel rather disheartening, but if you don’t replace the missing tooth or teeth then you’ll also face some other serious consequences. For one, the jawbone needs stimulation from tooth roots to produce new bone cells and to stay healthy and strong.
When you lose one or more teeth, there isn’t enough stimulation for the jawbone, which causes it to deteriorate. Fortunately, once our Atlanta cosmetic dentist places a dental implant, it can prevent bone deterioration and facial structure changes.
Restore Chewing and Speech
It’s amazing how much we take these simple, everyday habits for granted until we are faced with tooth loss. Missing teeth can make it difficult to eat all the foods you love and to obtain the nutrients you need. You may also develop a speech impediment such as a lisp. Dental implants stay in place and won’t move around like dentures are known to do, so you can rely on them to completely restore chewing and speech.
