After having a tooth removed, many patients seek ways of restoring their smile. For many years a common approach has been to replace them with bridges. However, dental implants have become an increasingly popular option among our patients. They are stable, aesthetically pleasing, and functional. They’re appropriate whether you’re missing one tooth, several, or an entire arch of teeth. They can even fully restore a smile when upper and lower teeth are absent. We’re proud to serve our patients with dental implant options to restore their smiles.
How Buckhead Dental Group Restores Your Smile With Implants
An important part of the success of dental implants is the result of the metal used. Implants that secure your teeth are made of titanium, which can stimulate the regrowth of bone. When implants are placed, osseointegration of bone cells with the titanium occurs. This process involves physically fusing the titanium with the bone, making it part of your body.
This makes them a stable and reliable platform for placing prosthetic dental restorations. Their stability makes them look and feel like natural teeth. They only require normal dental hygiene practices to be maintained. These properties are part of what makes them more popular than traditional dentures.
- Security – Unlike dentures, you’ll never have to worry about your teeth slipping or moving when eating, talking, etc. Many patients who receive dental implants report no difference in experience between them and natural teeth. Not having to remove them to clean them means there’s no concern about their dropping or breaking when you clean them.
- Durability – Dental implants are engineered to last for decades. This sets them apart from other restorations with a limited lifespan and may need repeated replacement throughout your life.
- Ease Of Cleaning – Implants with crowns (“caps”) can be flossed the same way natural teeth can. When teeth are replaced with bridges, they can be difficult to floss around the false tooth or teeth.
- Health Neighboring Teeth – Neighboring teeth next to implant supported crowns or bridges do not have to be crowned (“capped”) when implants are used.
These properties have been a driving force behind the popularity of dental implants. They’re beautiful, reliable, and easy to care for. Over the long run, they’re an affordable solution for restoring teeth damaged by time or decay.
